Hoswick is a lovely village with a welcoming heart – a geographical nucleus with a close-knit population including many young families.

 

It is full of creative people and genuine folk, with strong local ties, who are not just connected to the land and sea but to their own history, culture and future.

The village overlooks Hoswick Bay - our beach is amazing for beachcombing, seal and wildlife spotting. Take a boat trip to the nearby RSPB protected Mousa Isle – an uninhabited island with a rich history and wonderful wildlife - and climb up the ancient Mousa Broch.
