Garleton Cottage Reviews

We have really enjoyed our week on Orkney. The cottage is great, really comfortable and well equipped. Weather was variable. We visited the Highland Park Distillery when it was too wet for anything else. We did the main sights locally and on the mainland. We also managed a day on Hoy, the windy walk to The Old Man is highly recommended as is museum at Lyness. Sam the dog enjoyed the local beach and new smells. Beach at Scapa was good for doggy ball throwing.

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Orkney and in the cottage. Orkney is really quite a special place and we managed to get round most of Mainland as well as South Ronaldsay and Hoy. The weather was kind and was especially good on the day of the wedding we attended with a spectacular sunset in the evening.

We loved staying in the cottage which was very comfortable and were sorry to leave. It was lovely to look out over the water in the evenings. There is rather a nice coffee house/bar in St Margarets Hope now called Robertsons which seems to be popular. I am so pleased we booked the cottage rather than taking a hotel room – it really made our holiday.

Had a wonderful holiday. Lovely Cosy Cottage. Dog loved the beach walk every morning. Visited Skara Brae, the Standing Stones at Deerness, Maeshawe and “The Cairns” as our daughter was taking part in “the dig”. All amazing places – Oh and the Ness of Brgdar aswell. Orkadians very friendly and helpful. Recommend the ‘The Reel’ in Kirkwall for food and the Hoxa Tearoom up the road. The view is fantastic and the cakes to die for. Hope to return soon.

Very warm and cosy in the Cottage. Loved the Italian Chapel, Scara Brae, Stanmding Stones and Ring of Bora. For evening meals recommend the bistro at tthe ‘Tomb of the Otters’ and Sands Hotel. The Hoxa Tea Room and Fossil Centre Tearoom are outstanding. Thrilled to see a seal near cottage.
