Interaction with guests
Hi there. We live next door but that means we are mostly on hand if guests need help or advice. There are keys to the Bakehouse, but we will leave it open for you on the day of arrival to let yourself in. We do enjoy having new neighbours for a wee while, and will love to meet you during your stay.

Staying here for the week. Everything we could have wished for, lovely comfortable and well-equipped accommodation, friendly helpful owner and dog friendly. Rousay is beautiful and peaceful with lots of interesting walks and a nice place to eat, the Taversoe, near the cottage. Perfect!

Thank Maggie B

About the neighbourhood
Rousay is a little gem of an island, could well be Orkney's friendliest, and only 20 minutes from Tingwall by ro-ro ferry. The Bakehouse is on the south facing side of the island and is tucked into a nook in the hill. The hills of Rousay are heather covered, with a fringe of green arable fields below leading down to the shore. Bakehouse is on the border between the two, in a little group of houses that was the old merchant centre for the island. A short walk up the track brings you into the hill, or down, to the shore. The Taversoe hotel and pub is less than a mile away along the road. The dark nights make for great star gazing on the way home.
Rousay's population is about 200, yet we have plenty of facilities - a gym, a community school (for our primary pupils), a shop and...
How to get there
Trains and boats and planes! If you require a pick up from the pier or drop off on your last day, do let us know and we will do our best to sort something out for you so you don't have to lug suitcases 2 miles! Probably we can just meet you off the ferry. Norman is one of the engineers on the ferry, so there's a 50/50 chance he will be guiding your car aboard. Ah yes! You will need to reverse your car aboard the Eynhallow ferry, so when you park up at Tingwall you park in line with your boot to the sea. If the reversing aboard alarms you, just ask the crew to do it. They won't mind at all. Directions in Rousay: Up hill away from the pier, bearing left at war memorial, turning Left at T junction at Trumland Gatehouse, 2 and a bit miles up hill and down dale, and you will... more
