Kirk Abune the Hill

Birsay|From £850 per week

Completely renovated in 2014, but retaining many attractive original features, the Kirk Abune the Hill provides some of the best accommodation Orkney has to offer.

The accommodation is bright and airy with the huge kirk windows enveloping the living areas with natural light. All areas of the Kirk are furnished and cleaned to a very high standard, ensuring the best for your stay here in Orkney. Keep cosy by the open hearth fire, and snuggle up on the comfortable fabric sofas. The open plan kitchen and diner make entertaining for large parties easy with plenty of room to accommodate and sleep up to 8 people. There are stunning views from the Kirk over rich and rural landscapes, stretching as far as the eye can see in the tranquil parish of Birsay where you'll expect to see many varied species of wildlife on your doorstep.

Repeatedly voted the best place to live in Scotland, Orkney has a way of life you can come to love. Endless skies, dramatic seascapes, space, history, nature and freedom combine to draw people back, with many visitors returning year after year and a good few (ourselves included!) eventually settling here. We hope you enjoy your stay on our beautiful Island and take away great memories to treasure forever.
