Stayed here with my Mum and husband for 4 nights on the lovely island of Rousay. Every thing we needed was provided for and the cottage itself had all we needed. My Mum enjoyed seating in the window seat and watching the birds and boats in the distance.
Rousay itself has amazing archaeology and the local Taversoe pub serves excellent dinners. If you are looking for a cottage to stay in on Rousay I would thoroughly recommend the bakehouse.

The house is everything described and then some. We only stayed for 2 nights, but would love to return and stay for a week or more! Extremely clean, well-furnished, comfortable - left us wanting for nothing. The picture of the person sitting in the window seat is totally accurate - my daughter sat there for hours reading and taking pictures. The view is spectacular. The hosts are incredibly accommodating, helpful and most of all friendly. I'm almost embarrassed to gush so much, but I can't think of a single bad thing to say. It's fabulous!
