The holiday accommodation is a 35ft x 12ft Willerby static caravan. It is beautifully situated with fabulous scenery and comes fully equipped with full sized gas cooker and 4 -ring hob, fridge, microwave, fully fitted kitchen/diner with comprehensive range of crockery, cutlery and glassware etc. Parking for 1 vehicle on site.

There is a very comfortable, well designed lounge area with panoramic sea views over Scapa Flow, Hoy, Graemsay, open farmland and Pentland Firth, towards mainland Scotland. TV and DVD player in the lounge.

The caravan has two bedrooms; a double bedroom and a twin room, each with fitted wardrobes providing ample storage space.

The shower room has a wash basin and there is a separate toilet room with wash basin too, all mains plumbed. All linen and towels are supplied.

There are electric panel heaters in all rooms and a gas fire in the lounge.

The caravan is in our garden, a section of which you are welcome to use.  We are also happy to store/dry bicylcles/fishing/shooting equipment etc in our garage but please let us know in advance if this is required.  Parking space for 1 vehicle and private access to the caravan is available.

We are happy to accept dogs but please let us know in advance if you plan on bringing yours with you.  Please note, though, that we have our own dog, Murphy, who is a friendly and energetic labrador/springer spaniel cross.   We kindly ask that dogs are kept on a lead in the garden at all times as we keep hens and the adjoining fields are occupied by livestock. 

Location

Braehead is situated just a 10 minute walk from the town of Stromness, where the ferry from Scrabster arrives daily. Stromness has a population of around 2000 people and the town is very quaint with cobbled streets, shops, pubs and nice places to eat. There is a good butcher, bakery, a Co-op and a chinese takeaway. Orkney's capital city being Kirkwall, is 16 miles from Stromness but served by a regular public bus.  There are laundry facilities available at the Terminal Building on Ferry Road (where the boat comes in).

The caravan is just a stones-throw away from Warbeth Beach which you will quite often have all to yourself.  Orkney is particularly good for bird watching, loch fishing, walking etc. Diving is also popular due to the ship wrecks in Scapa Flow. We have neolithic sites in Orkney older than the pyramids, the Ring of Brodgar is a must! There are very good museums in both Stromness and Kirkwall, with 2 very good farm museums that are well worth a visit. RSPB sites are plentiful with a hide.

There are regular ferries to the north and south isles, some just foot pasenger and others roll on roll off. You can catch the passenger ferry direct from Stromness to Graemsay or Hoy (both of which you can see from the caravan!) for a day trip.  The famous Rackwick beach is a 3 mile walk from the Moaness pier in Hoy which means you can walk or cycle there and back, still in time for the ferry home in the evening.  We are more than happy to advise on ferry times etc, just ask!

There are various festivals on throughout the year; folk festival, St Magnus festival and blues festival, . Brochures for these events can be acquired from the tourist office in either Stromness or Kirkwall.

Orkney is very popular with shooters in the winter season, with many local companies offering guided trips.  We are happy to accept shooting groups, who are welcome to store/dry equipment in our garage.

If you have never been to Orkney you will be surprised at how beautiful the coastline is with crystal clear sea water and lots of sandy bays and beaches. Some of the cliffs are spectacular with St Johns Head on Hoy, 1000ft high, being the tallest sheer cliff in Britain. The famous 'Old Man of Hoy' being a popular sea stack for climbers.

Should you decide to visit Orkney in August you will be surprised at the wonderful county shows with livestock, rare breeds of poultry, local craft stalls, Celtic dancing, horse jumping and lots of attractions for the kids. There is of course a beer tent too!

Cycling is also very popular here with cycle hire if you don't bring your own. 

You will be made welcome wherever you venture in Orkney and we hope to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Caravan Holiday Park Information

Braehead is situated a quarter of a mile from Stromness, where the ferry from Scotland arrives 3 times daily. Stromness has a population of 2000 people and the town is very quaint with cobbled streets, shops, pubs and nice places to eat. There is a good butcher, a Co-op and a chip shop. Orkney's capital city being Kirkwall, is 16 miles from Stromness and has a more comprehensive selection of shops and supermarkets.

Orkney is particularly good for bird watching, loch fishing, walking etc. Diving is also popular due to the ship wrecks in Scapa Flow. There are neolithic sites here that are older than the pyramids, standing stone circles and various very old Broch. There are very good museums in both Stromness and Kirkwall, with 2 very good farm museums that are well worth a visit. RSPB sites are plentiful with a hide.

There are regular ferries to the north and south isles, some just foot pasenger and others roll on roll off. There is also a good bus service, Car hire etc.

There are various festivals on throughout the year; folk festival, blues festival, beer festival and a good few sea angling competitions. Brochures for these events can be acquired from the tourist office in either Stromness or Kirkwall.

If you have never been to Orkney you will be surprised at how beautiful the coastline is with crystal clear sea water and lots of sandy bays and beaches. Some of the cliffs are spectacular with St Johns Head on Hoy, 1000ft high, being the tallest sheer cliff in Britain. The famous 'Old Man of Hoy' being a popular sea stack for climbers.

The islands are so different, some hilly and some flat, but all have a beauty of their own. North Ronaldsay for instance is the most northerly of the Orkney Islands and the whole of the perimiter of the island is surrounded by a stone wall, called a dyke, serving the purpose of keeping the sheep on the shoreline, thus retaining the grassland for the cattle to eat. The sheep are thus a unique breed. The meat has a flavour all of its own. Hoy is the most mountainous of the Orkney Isles, situated just across the water from Stromness, and it's only half an hour on the ferry.

Should you decide to visit Orkney in August you will be surprised at the wonderful county shows with livestock, rare breeds of poultry, local craft stalls, Celtic dancing, horse jumping and lots of attractions for the kids. There is of course a beer tent too!

Cycling is also very popular here with cycle hire if you don't bring your own. There is a lot less traffic up here making cycling a lot safer.

You will be made welcome wherever you venture in Orkney.
