Set on a narrow slip of land with a sea water loch to the front and a lovely beach to the rear, Bayview has an enviable position rarely found in the UK. Sanday, is the largest of the northerly Orkney Isles, appropriately named as it is mostly made up of swathes of white sandy beaches with turquoise waters and many sand dunes. The stunning and unspoilt coastline around the island must be viewed to be believed – all that is missing are the palm trees. Adding to the appeal of Sanday are the many impressive archaeological sites uncovered over the years including brochs and burial mounds, with one of the most significant discoveries being a Viking boat burial complete with skeletons. The island is also home to a very distinctive striped lighthouse designed and built by Thomas Smith assisted Robert Stevenson back in 1807. Situated on the edge of Lady Village you will find Heritage Visitor Centre which holds a wealth of fascinating information going back many generations of island residents. Beside this is The Croft, a small house recreated to show family life many years ago. Sanday has a rich natural habitat and is home to many species of birds and wildlife making it a wildlife enthusiasts paradise. A holiday to Sanday will be a unique and unforgettable experience where many happy memories will be made and enjoyed. Beach 10 yards. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

Guest Comments

"We had a wonderful time at Bayview! Tucked in between a loch and the ocean the location was perfect. Remote and removed from daily life, it was wonderful. The beaches are gorgeous and the wildlife is amazing! Joanna and Martin were very helpful and wonderful hosts.We'll definitely have to come back :)"

"We really enjoyed our week here. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished, and it is very cosy. We had everything we could possible need and appreciated all the little touches - the homemade bread & marmalade & biscuits, the optional provision of wine, and the doggie treats.There is a village store five minutes down the road so you can buy basic provisions, but don't expect lots of fresh food. Sadly because of Covid, most of the local amenities were closed but we did have an excellent supper at a b&b/restaurant down the road which was recommended. But we went to Sanday for the peace and quiet and the wildlife and we certainly got that."

"Bayview is the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in! Feels as tho you are house sitting in someone's home rather than staying in a rental. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners - my ferry from Kirkwall to Sanday was postponed, but Jo txtd a list of hotels to stay in. Most highly recommended!!!!"

Alison, October 2019

"An amazing place photos don’t do the place it’s full justice. The cottage is beautiful, well equipped and if you are looking for a relaxing environment this is the place. Thanks so much for a fabulous holiday"
