This comfortable cottage was once the home of a Victorian lighthouse keeper. Now an ideal escape which is pleasantly situated with most rooms having views looking out over the sea towards the Pentland Firth or across the hills of Hoy. From the lighthouse gentle strolls take you to the Hills of White Hamar wildlife reserve just next door, to a nearby sandy beach, or to the shops and general store in Longhope. The lighthouse was designed by the renowned engineers Thomas and David Stevenson.

The space
The two bedroom Victorian former lighthouse keepers cottage has been tastefully decorated to comfortably accommodate 4-5 people in this two bedroom property. The living room boasts a real fire wood Burning Stove and the spacious well equipped kitchen diner can seat up to eight people.
