A fantastically designed wing in Westray that makes the most of the sea views, making it an ideal romantic retreat where you could be lucky enough to witness the Northern Lights.

Sitting on a working farm on the island of Westray – ‘the Queen o’ the Isles’ - this beautiful self-contained wing in the 18th-century House of Brough is cosy and intimate. Offering wonderful sea views, it’s the perfect romantic retreat for two. Spend your days spotting puffins at Noup Head Cliffs (6 miles) or strolling hand in hand along Pierowall Beach (2.5 miles), and your nights snuggling up in front of the property’s glowing wood burner. Peek outside and you may even see the Northern Lights.


Overflowing with quaint, quirky charm, this wing is truly unique. Traditional features like flagstone flooring and exposed stone walls blend effortlessly with smart, modern styling and fun features like the ‘Gin and Tonic Terrace’. It lends itself easily to an atmosphere of intimacy and romance.


This wonderful wing has its own entrance door that leads into a stylish open-plan kitchen/diner. Cook up a feast for two in the kitchen and enjoy a romantic meal in the intimate dining area. After dinner, make your way to the lounge, slip onto a sofa and catch up on all of your favourite TV shows. If the mood takes you, pull up a pew at the piano and strike up a tune.


Climb the spiral staircase to the first-floor and you’ll find the wonderful ‘Gin and Tonic Terrace’ where you can relax with your favourite tipple and take in the view from the enormous windows. The bedroom boasts a super-king-size bed, and has a screen wall to separate it from the Gin and Tonic Terrace, which means that the entire space is bathed in natural light.


Outside, you’ll find a walled garden with a pond. Parking for two cars is available on the driveway. Please note that the wing is attached to the owner’s home.

Westray, although small in size, is a vibrant and fascinating island that is entwined in Norse history. Known as the ‘Queen o’ the Isles’, it boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the Orkney Islands. It also makes a great base to visit the adjacent island of Papa Westray via the passenger ferry from nearby Pierowall (2.5 miles).

Noup Head Cliffs (6 miles) are a must-see for nature-lovers. The cliffs are an RSPB reserve, and you can expect to see peregrine falcons, ravens, gannets and puffins between April and July. Afterwards, take a stroll on Westray’s finest stretch of sand at Grobust (4 miles) and explore the remains of the ancient Neolithic settlement at the Links of Noltland.

Alternatively, check out the island’s incredible artisan producers. Sample the shortbread at Westray Bakehouse (3.5 miles), grab a jar of Fairtrade chutney at Westray Chutney (2 miles), or check out the wonderful local artwork on offer at Westray Art Gallery (2 miles).

Noltland Castle (3 miles) is also worth seeing. Built by the master of Mary Queen of Scots’ household – who sought refuge on the island after the queen’s arrest in 1567 - this imposing 16th-century building harks back to a particularly turbulent time of Scottish history. It is heavily fortified, with seven-foot-thick stone walls and boasts no less than 71 gun-holes.

Lovely property, great location and owner. The local lobster and crab are amazing when available and the fish is great. Very quiet part of the world with some great beaches. We loved it.

Fantastic. What a place to stay and what a welcome by Mark. The Peddie End is absolutely the perfect place to stay for a break away from the hustle and bustle of life. We fell in love with the Peedie End and Westray and did not want to leave. They call it the Queen of the Isle lands and the Peedie End is the jewel in the crown. After the days out wRead moree looked forward to getting back to the Peedie and relaxing in the Gin Terrace with the stunning views of Westray. Go and you will fall in love. Hide

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
