Where you’ll be

Evie, Scotland, United Kingdom

The house overlooks the islands of Eynhallow and Rousay, and the waters of Eynhallow Sound. It is set in farmland, so there are cattle and sheep around, and there may sometimes be tractors working nearby. Quiet rural place with outstanding scenic beauty and close proximity to Heart of Neolithic Orkneys attractions.

We are an Orcadian family living on a small farm in Evie. Our family consists of myself, Linda, my husband, Simon, our children, Anja and Alexander, our cat and our Dandie Dinmont Terrier. We love Orkney and have stayed here all our lives except to go away to study. We love to travel and have found using AirBnB great as it lets us experience to culture of wherever we're visiting by staying with locals. We have a small holding of sheep and if you're visiting at lambing time you're welcome to come and meet the new additions. We look forward to welcoming you to our property and sharing the true beauty of Orkney with you!
