NB - START JUNE- END SEPTEMBER - WEEKLY+ BOOKINGS ONLY SAT -SAT OR ending OR starting on SAT (split weeks - 3 or 4 night bookings)
Strathyre is a spacious family 'strictly non-smoking' home set in 5 acres of land with views over Boardhouse Loch. Plenty room inside and out for 6 people. One twin and two double bedrooms, large sitting room and large kitchen which WAS the original house 200 years ago! There is an ensuite shower room off double bedroom and a family bathroom, both of which are NOW totally remodelled as of October 2016!! We are sure a welcome updating!

Covid Measures for Guests

The home has been cleaned, sanitised and reset for your arrival following Airbnb Covid guidelines.

We ask you to use sanitiser on entry - left in hall.

On departure please take all linen used including shower/bath mats/ towels and put directly into bin liners (found in each room wardrobe) Hang duvets over wardrobe doors to air

Ensure all bins are thoroughly emptied and cleaned

All food not used is taken away as will need to be thrown out otherwise

On departure open a window in each room and leave all internal doors open

Please leave promptly at 10am as the house must be rested before our changeover person can enter to prepare the house for next guests. This is vitally important for her safety and well-being


Guests have access to all areas of the house and land. There is one locked cupboard in the house where we store extra supplies etc. There is wifi throughout the house (though not fast as per all of Orkney!), TV and CD player. THERE IS NO DISHWASHER OR WASHING MACHINE. This is due to plumbing issue in kitchen so apologies about this, but we have no other option as our personal items are locked off in room with washing machine.




We will endeavour to provide as much information as guests require/need for the perfect stay! We have a person locally who will be on hand for entry/departure and/or any problems.

Orkney is lucky to have so many ancient sites of interest - Stone Age, Bronze Age, Vikings etc. Birdwatching, loch/sea fishing (free - no permits required) and beachcombing are fabulous.
There are wonderful festivals - folk, classical and science.
Not to mention pure air, incredible skies/seascapes and of course the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights!)

You really need to have a car to stay in Strathyre or indeed Orkney as there is very limited public transport. Ample parking at the house. Good ferry connections to Scrabster and Aberdeen. Airport in Kirkwall where car hire is possible.

Orkney in summer has very little darkness at all - very special. Of course the contrary is true in winter!
This is a well loved family home - NOT a customised 'holiday home' so please expect, 'bumps, bruises and idiosyncrasies!'

It is a very old house with natural stone walls and a wood burning stove and as a result can be DUSTY. If you have a DUST aversion perhaps this is not the house for you!

Once you book exact location and all details on how to access the house including the very important house manual becomes available to you on Airbnb site. Please download this.


Minimum 4 night bookings at other times.

I love travelling and have stayed in 'out of the way' places all over the world. I lead expeditions worldwide which is my job. Central America has a real place in my heart. Orkney was where I first went to teach MANY years ago. This is our 'family' home which we will never part with, as husband and sons were born there. Its a 'home from home' and perfect vacation spot which most people return to over and over again. The motto 'here where the world is quiet'.......suits Strathyre.
