Skaill House is the fine 17th century mansion overlooking the spectacular Bay of Skaill on the Orkney Islands. Home of William Graham Watt, 7th Laird of Breckness, who unearthed the World famous Neolithic village of Skara Brae in 1850. The house was originally built in 1620 by Bishop George Graham (Bishop of Orkney 1615-1638), and has been added to by successive generations over the centuries. In its 400 year evolution, all 12 Lairds have been related, contributing to the history and collections in the house.
Today, after careful restoration work, the house is open to the public and entry is included in a joint ticket with Skara Brae, which is just a 200m walk away. Skaill House has been accredited by VisitScotland as a four star visitor attraction. Visitors can experience a family home as it was in the 1950s, and discover the items collected by the family since the 17th Century. Neolithic and Iron Age finds, Captain Cooks’s dinner service, the Bishop’s bed, and Stanley Cursiter paintings are a few of the many fascinating items on exhibition here.
Children are very welcome here at Skaill House, and can join in our much loved Viking hunt as they explore the rooms of the house. The house abounds with ghost stories to capture the imagination during your visit.
Effie’s of Perth
We know our Tea... but tea is almost never enough on its own. How about a plump, floury homemade scone with lashings of clotted cream and our own strawberry jam? Or maybe you've heard about our carrot cake, widely considered to be the best in the area. Prefer something a little more substantial? How about Macaroni, made right here in our kitchen to our secret recipe with Lockerbie mature cheddar cheese and durum pasta? Handmade chips? Of course you can... you are assured of a warm welcome, good food and something just a little bit...magic.
