Bu is original Norse. A Bu was a farm prefix, indicating the farm was of local significance, almost certainly the main Landowner of the local farming area, known as a Tunship. This word was turned into Bulle by the Scots when they took over administration of Orkney from the Norwegians in the 15th century, then again it became replaced with the prefix Hall in the 18th century.
NEW: Virtual Tour of The Bu at Heddle (requires Flash, opens in new tab). Takes a wee while to load depending on your connection speeds but well worth the time. Fantastic zoom 180 views of the interior.
The Bu is a two bedroom apartment at the Hall of Heddle which was converted in 2012 as the fourth offering in the range of top rated accommodation that we have for you at Orkneycrofts.
The Bu comprises a double bedroom, a large single bedroom, a shower wet room and beautiful and well appointed Kitchen and a spectacular large sitting room, measuring 40ft x 25ft. The sitting room overlooks the garden and faces toward the Standing Stones and Ness of Brodgar. It is a splendid space.
The Bu is for 1-3 adults though it could be easily used by a family of four with two children under 10 years.
It has even higher quality fittings and finishes as the other properties at Orkneycrofts. More Photos will be available at the end of April. If you are interested in booking the Bu call me directly to discuss further details or simply use the booking system as for the other crofts. The high season price is £550 per week, the low season £375 per week.
