Peedie House Testimonials

Our second visit. Enjoyed the views out to Copinsay and the quiet seclusion of the Peedie House. With Steve, Sarah & Sami around to offer tips and advice on wildlife watching in the islands, we really made the most of our stay in Orkney.

Lisa is a fabulous artist and derives some of her inspiration from Orkney – see her work at

Birding; walking; site-visiting; drawing; painting; photo-taking; reading; whisky; relaxing - perfect! We will miss the nightly "hen parade" and the Orkney/Shetland ferry on the horizon. Great weather and lovely accommodation. Thank you.
