Escape from The Modern World

Posted on

Mingro, Stronsay, Orkney - Available for holiday lets from 1st May 

Mingro is all about escaping the modern world. There is no TV, no broadband and occasionally you get a mobile phone signal standing in front of the wood burner. Take a few good books, watch the sea, walk the sands, and immerse yourself in the delights of nature. Positioned at one end of Rothiesholm beach, which has white sands, clear waters and is a gentle horseshoe in shape. Most days you have the whole beach to yourself occasionally interrupted by the odd dog walker or seal!

Stronsay is one of the Northern Orkney Isles which can be reached by daily ferries or plane from Kirkwall. The island measures just six miles by four and is known as the Island Of Bays. The island is catered for by two shops, a pub/hotel and cafe (both have WiFi).

Mingro is a stone’s throw from the beach, you can walk out of the garden directly on to the sands. The house comprises of kitchen/dining area with multi fuel burner, bathroom with shower, living room with multi fuel burner, double bedroom and store room. In addition to the multi fuel burners heat is provided by programmed electric radiators.

Please make direct contact if you would like to book. Mingro is also available through cottages.com, https://www.cottages.com/cottages/mingro-uk30515 

We stayed here for one night at the end of our NC500 journey and I can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we parked our car to the moment we left the next morning we were made to feel at home. We were met with a cup of tea and a chat in the garden on arrival and our host, Neil and Linda, frequently made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. They were attentive, friendly and more than accommodating and seemed like just genuinely nice people too. The room was lovely and spacious with a comfy bed and a well stocked tea tray with fresh milk on request. The guest lounge was a great place to relax and there were plenty of spaces to sit in the lovely garden when the weather is nice. Breakfast was delicious with great cakes made by the lovely Linda. The whole place felt like a luxury and yet felt like home. Thank you for a great stay
