Made available as holiday accommodation in 2014, Newbigging is a traditional 19th century “but and ben” which was renovated and extended to a high standard in 2011. It now provides attractive, modern, high quality self-catering accommodation, suitable for up to three couples, or a family.
The house sits in an elevated position, providing unrestricted coastal and sea views over rolling farmland. It is perfectly positioned close to some of Westray's best cliff and beach walks and is near to The Castle O’ Burrian, one of the best Puffin watching spots in Orkney.
Newbigging has three generously proportioned double bedrooms, each with en-suite toilet and shower room. Powered by its own wind turbine and fitted with air source heating, the competitive rates include all bills, bedding and towels.
The spacious open plan living area comprises a fully equipped kitchen- dining room and a comfortable lounge complete with a wood burning stove. This room is surrounded by large windows providing panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
Situated away from the public road, there is a large decking area at the front of the property, which is also surrounded by a large lawn, ideal for picnics, football and even sunbathing when weather permits.
Newbigging is conveniently located 1 mile from the main ferry terminal and is in a perfect position for enjoying Westray's unique and fascinating natural environment. It is recommended that guests should have access to a car for exploring the island as public transport services are very limited.
