Maraquoy is a quiet location, sitting in 1 acre of ground surrounded by fields, at the top of Cairston Road. It has magnificent and commanding views over the bay of Eyreland, Hoy Sound and the Orphir hills down to Scapa Flow in the south west. To the south east are views over Stenness and Harray Lochs where the prestigious archaeological sites of Brodgar and Stenness and Maes Howe can be seen. Unstan tomb, from which pottery worldwide is named, is only half a mile from Maraquoy and we are only 15 minutes drive away from the Skara Brae world heritage site. The late afternoon and evening sun settles on the three private patio areas and sheltered gardens at the rear of Maraquoy. There is ample car parking at each of the cottages.
The swimming pool, badminton court, playing fields and fitness suite are within easy walking distance at the bottom of the road and the town centre, ferry terminal, the acclaimed Pier Arts Centre and golf course are only a 3 minute drive away. The town has 3 good hotels,restaurants and cafés.
