The garden consists of a pretty flower border and a private grassy area – perfect for picnics with the kids or just a chance to relax and enjoy the fabulous sea view across to the small island of Helliar Holm and beyond to Mainland Orkney.
Helliar Holm is an uninhabited island off the southern coast of Shapinsay. It is home to a 42 foot tall lighthouse built in 1893 and now automated. The Holm is a tidal island connected to Shapinsay at low tides; you will often see seals there.
