Your hosts, Darren and Jayne Richardson welcome you to Lower Quoys self catering accommodation. Located in Evie on the Orkney Mainland, Lower Quoys is a 4 acre old farm built in the 1800’s. It is a traditional long farmhouse very close to Evie beach and Eynhallow Sound.
It is the most accessible, centrally located area on the West of the Mainland, providing an excellent base from which to appreciate all that Orkney has to offer.
Lower Quoys offers a contemporary furnished two bedroomed, two storey house on a self-catering basis. The house was completely renovated over 2014/2015 as part of the whole farm renovation work and offered to the holiday market for the first time at the end of 2016.
You can see Eynhallow Sound from the back of the house. It is a magnificent stretch of water, and includes the small uninhabited Island of Eynhallow. The name ‘Eynhallow’ comes from the Old Norse, Eyin Helga (‘Holy Island’). It’s also easy to see the Island of Rousay, accessible by boat from Tingwall jetty just around the corner. Aikerness beach or ‘Evie beach’ is within walking distance or a 2 minute drive if you’d prefer. It is a sandy beach with crystal clear waters, excellent for walking, swimming or paddling with the children. Seals can often be seen here.
Evie is approximately 20 minutes drive from both Kirkwall and Stromness the two main towns on the Mainland. Within the parish of Evie and Rendall are a number of prehistoric features, including Gurness, an Iron Age Broch that overlooks Eynhallow Sound. Evie village boasts a shop with post office and café.
