Quoy Cottages

Quoy Cottages offer you the perfect holiday retreat in beautiful Orkney. Our cottages provide an excellent base for anyone keen on bird watching, photography, fishing, cycling, boating or walking.

Our cottages, Old Granary Quoy and Puffin Quoy, provide a beautiful location that will tempt you to sit in the tranquil gardens all day and enjoy the Orkney sun. You can sit and look out to sea and watch the local fishing boats in the Bay of Houton, or perhaps choose to wander round the stunning gardens of the main house.

Quoy Cottages provide luxury self catering accommodation all year round. When the weather is inclement you can cosy up in the deep comfortable sofas by a roaring log burning fire and perhaps do a little reading or research into the events that occurred in the bay right in front of you during World Wars I and II.

Both cottages offer the very latest digital televisions, WiFi and Blue Ray players.

Alternatively, you can relax in our whirlpool baths that have lighting to suit your mood.

Or, perhaps you would prefer to order a delicious meal cooked by Caroline using locally sourced produce and knowledge derived from Rosemary Shrager & Nick Nairn cooking schools. Caroline’s renowned food has earned a Taste of Scotland award and Healthy Living award. You can have your meal delivered directly to your cottage: all you have to do is pop it in the oven.


The Garden House at Quoy

Caroline and Kevin are delighted to welcome up to four guests to the unique GARDEN HOUSE at The Quoy from September 2019.

A rare chance for up to two couples to stay in a fully restored historic grade C Scottish Lairds home, built in 1780. Flagged stone floors, beams and log burners in both the kitchen and cosy lounge add to the experience.

The views over the sea are some of the best in Orkney, and it’s just a five minute stroll down a quiet lane to the shore where seals regularly haul themselves up.

The gardens really are something special described by Gardeners World as one of the top ten coastal gardens in the U.K and of course awarded Best Challenging Garden 2017.

The Quoy has been featured in several magazines including Coast, Scottish Field and English Country Garden and of course BBC 2 Beechgrove Garden.
