Hoy, Orkney Islands, Scotland
Its central position makes it an ideal base for walking, cycling or touring the beautiful island of Hoy. Hoy is a very rich island in history with sites that date from prehistoric times to the 20th century. Hills and stunning sea cliffs offer excellent hill walking, bird watching and observing the beautiful, unspoiled vegetation.

After a day out exploring, relax by the open fire and feast your eyes on the stunning views of Longhope Bay from the window.

About the neighbourhood
Hoy, from the Norse Haey meaning 'high island', is the second largest island in the Orkney group. The terrain of the larger northwest area of the island is similar to the Northern Highlands and largely consists of peaty moors and heather clad hills. The highest point on Hoy (and Orkney) is the summit of Ward Hill at 479 metres. It is possible to see almost all of the islands in Orkney from this summit, and on a clear day, Fair Isle, sixty miles to the north, may be glimpsed.

The Old Man of Hoy is a sandstone sea stack 137 metres high standing on a basalt base. It is the landmark most associated with Orkney, and is popular with climbers. The top of the cliff overlooking the Old Man can be reached by the signposted path from the Outdoor Centre above Rackwick Bay.
