Charming, spacious two bedroom house with lounge, dining room, kitchen, and shower/WC room. Take this opportunity for a digital detox with no wifi.

The property features amazing sea and island views. Newly renovated and retaining original features, the house is over 100 years old, and was formerly the residence of the commander of the Evie Territorials during WW1. Full of character, this house is comfortable, stylish, and practical. Set in quiet, rural West Mainland location.

De ruimte
Spacious, stone-built house with Edwardian character and military history. Fully and newly renovated with double glazing, heavily insulated, central heating by eco-friendly air source heating, plus real coal fire in lounge. One double bedroom with king size bed, one twin bedroom, kitchen, dining room, shower room/WC with heated towel rail, and lounge. Lots of enclosed outside space, lawns, private parking, garden furniture and barbecue.

Toegang voor gasten
We will open the house before your arrival time. If driving, please reverse into the private parking space adjacent to the house. Access is through the back door.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
This house is ideal for wildlife lovers. Red Throated Divers pass over the back garden in the summer evenings, calling as they return to their nest. Short Eared Owls and Hen Harriers hunt voles in the neighbouring fields, and can be viewed from the windows. Seals and otters frequent the shore just ten minutes' walk away.

You may wish to book a winter break for the spectacular, bracing weather, winter wildfowl watching at Evie Sound, or the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights - there is no light pollution here. The house is cosy and warm, with a lovely real fire - great to sit at on a winter evening with a dram or Orkney beer.

Interested in language or literature? The owner's husband is Dr Simon W. Hall, an award-winning Orcadian author, poet, and academic, who has written and lectured extensively on Orkney writers and Scottish Literature, including George Mackay Brown and others. A seminar on Orkney writers or a literary tour with Simon are available as an optional extra. A Burns Supper luxury weekend is also available. Please enquire for details.

The house has an extensive library of Orkney books - from medieval sagas to modern novels and poetry. Turn your holiday into a relaxing reading week, and immerse yourself in real Orkney culture. We are both native speakers of the Orkney Dialect 'Orcadian', and are happy to give you a few tips - or a full lesson if you like :)

Please note, The Drill Hall Cottage is intended as a quiet retreat - there is no wifi in the property however if you feel you need to stay connected there is good mobile coverage on most networks.

The house overlooks the islands of Eynhallow and Rousay, and the waters of Eynhallow Sound. It is set in farmland, so there are cattle and sheep around, and there may sometimes be tractors working nearby. Quiet rural place with outstanding scenic beauty and close proximity to Heart of Neolithic Orkneys attractions.

We are an Orcadian family living on a small farm in Evie. Our family consists of myself, Linda, my husband, Simon, our children, Anja and Alexander, our cat and our Dandie Dinmont Terrier. We love Orkney and have stayed here all our lives except to go away to study. We love to travel and have found using AirBnB great as it lets us experience to culture of wherever we're visiting by staying with locals. We have a small holding of sheep and if you're visiting at lambing time you're welcome to come and meet the new additions. We look forward to welcoming you to our property and sharing the true beauty of Orkney with you!
