We are just back from a fantastic holiday at The Slap Cottage. The cottage is incredibly authentic, steeped in history, cosy, welcoming, but with all modern appliances ,a wet room, and everything you could ever need in the gorgeous country cottage style kitchen. It's real fire and underfloor heating help to create the warm glow you feel upon entering. Catherine, it's owner is so welcoming, so helpful with local knowledge and leaves little gifts for you to enjoy upon arrival. The croft that the cottage is set in is a delight....sheep,,goats,chickens,ducks......and feeding them was a real treat...if you wish to ! A brilliant place to stay...a real experience of Orkney
