1st comment: Ideal if you are into Wildlife, walking and just want a peaceful holiday. There is absolutely nothing there. Ideal if Radio Amateur. Better to get shopping on Orkney before going onto island. July 2011.
2nd comment: The perfect get away from it location. April 2011.
3rd comment: Park is a cosy traditional cottage - small but well appointed, with a comfy king-size bed. The kitchen is tiny but it has absolutely everything you could want. It is approx 200 yards from one of the best beaches on the island, and a short walk from Start Point lighthouse. Marvellously peaceful and relaxing. The owner lives nearby and is very welcoming and helpful. Aug 2010.
4th comment: Property is very remote but there are other properties visible from it. The owner is often about in the afternoons as he accesses his garden and feeds his sheep. Local wildlife is great - very inquisitive seals and many types of seabird. Aug 2008.
