“Amazing cottage in an amazing place” We have stayed here 3 times now and have loved it each time. The cottage is so well-equipped and comfortable and has lots of little extra touches which are very welcome. We are going back again as we loved it and it is a brilliant base to explore the fantastic place that is Orkney. It is ideally placed to stargaze as well and you may be lucky and see the Northern Lights. The views are superb and the surrounding area is so peaceful. I would definitely recommend Ocean View!
Brockan is stunning inside and out. Full of beautiful or high quality things, pictures, sculpture, furniture, duvets, white goods, crockery and cutlery are much more than I've ever encountered before in a holiday rental. I loved the fact that the owners had used local craftsmen and goods (a lovely Orkney food basket on arrival that wasn't even expected) wherever possible. The owner phoned when we were there and was lovely, encouraging us to use the games and telling us about walks in the area (also spectacular), Joan the neighbour-manager was also great, getting us settled in and making us feel extremely welcome, and again pointing out local attractions. There is a sea view, lovely to sit with binoculars or a book. I have never used that well worn cliche of guest books before, but I will for Brockan - We'll be back! (and no, I'm not being paid by the owners to say all this!) …
Perfect comfortable cottage in a lovely quiet location
The location at the far end of Mainland is beautiful, quiet and peaceful, close to some good coastal walks and places of good bird life. Can see for miles from the pleasant garden which was a great place to sit out for breakfast. The cottage was well equipped with everything I needed and of a good size. Karen was helpful with information before the visit and stood out in the rain to direct me in when I arrived from the ferry at midnight! The welcome pack of goodies was well-received. I loved the peace and tranquillity, admittedly helped by perfect weather the whole week I was there. I loved the constant sounds of curlew and oystercatchers. Really enjoyed my first visit to Orkney and would love to come back to see more. It is so easy to get around to other parts of the island by car and getting supplies was never a problem. …
What a lovely cottage, would recommend to anybody. If your going to mainland Orkney ocean veiw is perfect. …
