1800’s luxury waterfront Anderson Harbour Cottages
This 1800's Cottage is set in the picturesque town of Stromness and has just come on the holiday market. The one bedroom Cottage has been totally redecorated along with new furniture, fittings and stylish contemporary nautical décor. It is cosy and quaint and has shared water frontage on the Stromness Harbour. Sunrises are quite spectacular as one looks across the picturesque Harbour with the Hoy High Lighthouse visible on the island of Graemsey. An interesting assortment of vessels cruise past from Fishing vessels leaving early in the morning to the impressively large Hamnavoe that ferries passengers to Stromness from the main land.
Anderson’s Harbour Cottage has a modern, well-equipped kitchen with brand new fridge, hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and microwave. It is equipped with everything for you to indulge in the fresh seafood you can buy locally and prepare with flair. The bathroom is newly tiled and spacious with a fresh and dainty feel about it. It has a bath with a glass shower above the bath.
The bedroom has white percale linen and is quite romantic with Capri white furniture complementing the charming feel and accompanying décor. There is a small room leading off from the bedroom, which would be suitable for small children to use - it has a bunk bed in it. Anderson’s Harbour Cottage also has a nice selection of books to indulge in while you relish this charming atmosphere of village life in Stromness. And if you are into TV – there is a large new flat screen TV too.
There is also a desk which is equipped with the basic office equipment in case you need to do some work while visiting our shores. There is off road public parking close by, for all sizes of cars.TripAdvisor property ID 3641205...Read more
Anderson's Harbour Cottages (there are 4 of them) are set in the most prime waterfront positions right on Stromness Harbour with a stunning view over Scapa Flow and magnificent sun rises from their piers. Each of the 1800's era Cottages are graded 4 star by Visit Scotland and equipped with every modern amenity and beautifully decorated. They also have Cook's Larders (a selection of over 25 different coffees and teas, sugars, cooking oils, cooking herbs and condiments) and wifi too. The Cottages include absolutely everything - all you need to bring is yourselves! The four Cottages (a 1½ bedroom, a 2 bedroom and two 3 bedroom) are located in charming walking distances along the quaint cobbled 1700's lanes, to the Museum, Library, Art Gallery, Pubs, Harbour, Shops, Hotels, Cafes, Golf Course and Public Transport.
The four Anderson Harbour Cottages are unusual in that they have both piers and parking and two of them have gardens too - which is unusual on the Stromness waterfront. One of them has their own slipway too - if you are keen on bringing your own boat with you to enjoy some loch and sea angling, kayaking or scuba diving or exploring.

Anderson's Harbour Cottages are extra special in that they are centrally located in the most quaint and charming town in Orkney, namely - Stromness. From here it is easy to access all the world acclaimed sights within Orkney - which is an archipelago comprising approximately 70 islands of which 20 are inhabited. The name “Orkney” dates back to the 1st Century and the islands have been inhabited for at least 8,500 years. Orkney is acclaimed to have the highest concentration of ancient human heritage sites in Britain and if you are lucky - the long winter nights are a perfect backdrop for the magnificent spectacle that is Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights. Orkney is welcoming in winter as the marine climate makes frost and snow rare, so its an excellent place to see wintering birds such as long=tailed duck, whooper swan and wader species.
Some of the interesting sites in Orkney are:
● The neolithic settlement of Scara Brae which is over 5,000 years old and a World Heritage Site.
● Ring of Brodgar - Neolitihc standing stones
● Deep sea diving the scuttled WW1 wrecks and the 8 German shipwrecks in Scapa Flow
● Rich birding experience - Orkney is the best place in the UK for viewing seabirds including the famous Puffins. There are 21 breeding species.
● Seaweed Eating sheep on North Ronaldsy
● Orkney Museum, Stromness Museum and St. Magnus Cathedral
● Highland Park Distillary
● Italian Chapel built by Italian Prisoners of War
