Holland Farmstead

Wandering on Papa Westray it’s impossible to miss Holland Farm. It’s a hugely impressive steading which once owned the island of Papa Westray and land on Westray and the Orkney Mainland as well. The buildings are beautiful and, being built in stone, have real character. There’s a circular mill-tramp and a corn drying kiln with buildings dating back to the 17th Century.

Next time I’ll have to have a closer look and see some of the buildings from the inside.
