My place is 200 metres from the beach and the world famous neolithic village of Skara Brae. You'll love my place because it is so unique, occupying the ground floor of a wing of a 17th Century Mansion House. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), groups of friends, solo adventurers, and those wanting to take their dogs on holiday with them.
The apartments at Skaill House are in a private wing of Orkney's finest 17th century mansion house, Skaill House. This has been the home of 12 Lairds to date, including the 7th Laird, William Watt, who unearthed the world famous neolithic village of Skara Brae, which is just a 200 metre walk away and can be clearly seen from the house. The apartments have been completely refurbished over the winter of 2016 and have a modern feel, yet retain the charm of a 17th Century property. The apartments are centrally heated by a wood pellet boiler so are very warm and cosy, even in the winter. They enjoy benefits such as fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, new ensuite bathrooms, laundry facilties and wifi.
The Grounds of Skaill House are vast, and guests can also enjoy use of an enclosed garden. Ample parking is also available
Dogs are welcome, but we ask that you respect the apartments and do not allow them on furniture and make sure they are relatively clean before coming back into the apartment (indoor space is available to clean them down prior to returning to the apartment)
The entire apartment is for your exclusive use. There is one other apartment on the first floor, and with them you will share use of the enclosed garden and a conservatory with seating area. There is also a communal courtyard which is open to members of the public during the day, but exclusively for shared use of the apartments in the evening. An ideal place for a bbq, or for enjoying the evening the sunshine. The main house itself, Skaill House, is open to the public, and in its open season you will have free access to see the house. The vast grounds of the house can also be enjoyed by visitors to the self-catering apartments who are free to roam as they like.

As Skaill House is open to the public 7 days per week April-October, there are always staff on hand to help when required. Out of season there are office staff who will be on hand during the week to provide assistance. There is also an on site maintenance man.
The main house is open to the public, but the apartments themselves are self contained in a separate wing with a separate entrance. You will see people milling around the main house throughout the day but this should not interfere with your visit.

- Please respect the house and its surroundings. There is another apartment in the wing so we ask you to kindly respect your neighbours
