Welcome to Unigar Cottages

A family run self-catering business, situated in Quoyloo, in Orkney’s beautiful west mainland.

Unigar Self-Catering Cottages

We offer three warm and welcoming cottages, each equipped with everything you’ll need to enjoy a comfortable stay in our islands.

Our cottages are all modern, spacious and built to the very highest of environmental standards, which is why we hold a Gold Green Tourism Award.

Unigar Cottages lie close to some of the most spectacular scenery in the islands and the ancient monuments of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site (the village of Skara Brae is just two miles away).


Please check our cottage pages to see the rates for different times of the year.


Come & Stay

We’re the ideal base for exploring the stunning coastline and beaches of the west mainland and you’ll find abundant birdlife and glorious wildflowers on our doorstep too. And, if fishing’s your passion, you’ll be delighted to learn that Unigar isn’t far from Orkney’s superb trout lochs.
