Howar Cottage

Nouster Crofthouse

June and or Gerry Morris will welcome you at North Ronaldsay pier or airfield and transport you to Howar Cottage or to Nouster. As permanent island residents we will be close by to help you settle in and, if you wish, to chat about island life and its special challenges.

Both the cottage and Nouster are self catering and close to the seashore.

Daily rates available with breakfast basics included in the price. Eg. Orange juice, cereal, bread, milk tea and coffee. Both properties sleep up to 4. Free transport back to your plane or ferry.

No need to worry about provisions on a remote Orkney island, we are always on hand to supply your needs at cost. To make sure we have your requirements send us a grocery list, we do a weekly shop at Tesco and the Co-op in Kirkwall.
Howar is a working farm and from both properties you can even collect fresh eggs from our Scots Dumpy hens or beautiful brown eggs from Welsummer hens, subject to the birds laying of course.

We are retired biology teachers who accidentally ended up with two properties on North Ronaldsay.
Nouster was architect designed and expensively renovated to be our dream home on the island. During the long renovation period the 80 acre Howar farm became available. This was an opportunity to indulge our hobby of primitive sheep keeping we couldn't ignore.

We are completely new to the business of self catering and are looking forward to meeting our first guests.
Please let us know anything that you think would make a stay in Howar or Nouster more attractive.
