Property description

Substantial four bedroom detached house set in three acres with extensive lawned areas and rough pasture land. Range of outbuildings which could provide an excellent opportunity for future development with the relevant planning permission.

Idyllically situated in a peaceful farmland setting with views over the sea and just 2.8 miles (4.5km) from the ferry terminal.

Accommodation comprises Lounge/Dining Room, Kitchen, Utility Room, three Bathrooms and four Bedrooms.

Say goodbye to traffic jams, the long and expensive commute, overcrowded cities and towns and that hectic pace of life.
Come to Orkney instead and enjoy a quality lifestyle in a stunning island location.
Lying off the North East coast of Scotland and benefiting from a temperate climate as the Gulf Stream passes close by, the fertile islands are proving a destination of choice for families who want to live, work and prosper.
Crime rates are low, jobs are plentiful, educational standards are high, with Orkney's schools regularly featuring amongst the best in the country. Orkney's culture, heritage, archaeology and wildlife are world famous and its leisure and community health facilities are second to none.
Best of all property prices are surprisingly affordable and you get so much more for your money when you look at the spacious homes and gardens that you can enjoy in these beautiful islands.
