Overlooking the seascapes
and islands of Scapa Flow and beyond to the hills of Hoy,
Creel Cottage is only 5 minutes from the south isles ferry
terminal at Houton and is equidistant from both Kirkwall
and Stromness. It is ideally centred for exploring the Orkney
Mainland with its archaeology, loch and sea fishing, diving,
silver and craft trails, island hopping, walking, bird watching
or just unwinding.
The flat is
situated at the end of a private road providing peace and
relaxation. Bird life is abundant and seals, dolphins and
porpoises can be seen in the area. Excellent walking starts
from the doorstep; enjoy a coastal walk to the sandy beach
at Swanbister Bay, a circular walk incorporating the
Orkneyinga Saga Centre or go for a more demanding walk among
the Orphir hills.
