    A cracking little site, peaceful, overlooking the sea, lots of bird life on the cliffs & an exciting coast/cliff walk to explore. Be prepared for lots of weather & wind in Orkney; 4 seasons in a day as they say!

    Many thanks to Paul & Julie for their warm and welcoming nature's. This was my second visit and will not be my last. I was visiting to do some fishing, which I can highly recommend. Well worth the effort to get there.
