1 Keepers Cottage sits adjacent to the historic light-tower and sleeps 6 in two double and one twin rooms. The cottage is comfortably furnished in keeping with the Victorian heritage of the building. The cosy living room features a real wood-burning stove. The well-equipped kitchen-diner includes electric cooker with induction hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. The bathroom has a free-standing bath and separate walk-in shower. Wi-Fi, oil central heating and electricity are all included in the price.
Outside, there are several seating areas to choose from – a courtyard with picnic tables, two walled sculpture gardens and a chiminea with platform for disposable barbeques. The views from the lighthouse complex are stunning – to the north and east the hills of Hoy and South Ronaldsay in the Orkney Islands stretch across the horizon, while to the west on a clear day the views extend all the way to the hills of Cape Wrath.
