The Old Manse (where we live) and the Glebe stand in open farmland. We are surrounded by fields with livestock - cows, bulls, calves, sheep, and lambs depending on the time of year. Our own hens roam freely around our land, and we have a collie who is at home about the place. This makes for a very special location for a holiday, but for these reasons we would ask you to be responsible if bringing a dog with you - please make sure to keep it under close control.
THE COUNTRYSIDE CODE
Orkney falls under the Scottish Freedom to Roam act. When walking around the area, and further afield through the islands, please make sure to observe the countryside code (see the link below for further information). Feel free to ask us about access if in doubt.
