Peedie House Self-Catering

The Peedie HouseThe Peedie House is an old stone byre which has been modernised and converted into 4 star self-catering accommodation for couples. It was built in the mid twentieth century with dry-stane walling techniques to store tatties (potatoes) and neeps (swedes). The Peedie House has been designed and constructed to enable full disabled access, and to high green tourism standards:

      We had a lovely time exploring this truly unique island - lots of great wildlife & fantastic weather. The base was very relaxing & it is a very peaceful spot - we'll definitely return in the future!

      Allison McFarlane & Neil Forrester, Edinburgh.

      We had a really good time here - travelling all over the islands, seeing the birds, seals, waves, tombs, standing stones. Have some of Steve & Sarah's beef - it's the best beef you'll taste!

      Orkney has plenty of charm and is a world apart from the modern hustle and bustle.
