|Newbigging Orkney Self Catering is a beautiful one bedroom cottage in the parish of Sandwick, in the West Mainland of Orkney. It is the perfect location to relax in peace and quiet.
It is situated on a hill and so has beautiful panoramic views over the surrounding farmland and Orkney landscape. From Newbigging you have breathtaking views of the Hoy Hills in the south, the lochs of Stenness and Harray to the southeast and views over the parishes of Sandwick, Harray and Birsay, giving a fantastic feel of Orkney.
You will be greeted by birdsong and the contented grazing of the farm animals in the surrounding fields each day and perhaps see a tractor working in the distance. Rabbits, hares, larks, wrens, starlings, black birds, swallows, geese, the occasional hen harrier and heron are your nearest neighbours!
Although Newbigging is a rural location you are only 3 miles from the small village of Dounby where you will find a hotel, Co-op, butcher, chemist, craft shop and much more. You will be on the door step of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney. Skara Brae, Ring of Brodgar, Ness of Brodgar, Maeshowe are all within a 15 minute drive.
The nearest town is Stromness which is 20 minutes away and Kirkwall is only 30 minutes away.
