Birsay boasts wonderful clifftop walks, sandy beaches and stunning open moorland.

Skesquoy Cottage


Skesquoy is a delightful country cottage set in 90 acres of its own grounds. The unspoilt tranquility of this corner of Orkney, along with the highest standard of accommodation, make Skesquoy a perfect base for your holiday.


Bordering an RSPB Reserve, numerous trout lochs and close to some of Orkney's many archaeological sites, you will enjoy a peaceful and comfortable break in Birsay.


Skesquoy has two double and one twin bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge / dining room with an open fire, and a sun lounge which overlooks the Loch of Hundaland. If you are looking for a country retreat, with birdsong for company, you will not be disappointed.


Please be aware before booking your holiday that part of the character and charm of Skesquoy is the characteristically low ceilings of the coomed attic bedrooms.
