This area of land extending to 8.15 acres has previously had planning permission for the siting of a dwellinghouse with detached garage. It comprises 6 acres of farmed land and 2.15 acres of marsh land bordering the North Loch with two storage sheds. The marsh land is classed as a site of special scientific interest.
Tankfield offers a unique site for a dwelling house on an unspoilt, special and very scenic island. Not only does it have panoramic views over the countryside to the isles of Eday, Westray, North Ronaldsay and on a clear day the Fair Isle but it is also surrounded by miles of golden, fine grained, sandy beaches. It is also adjacent to the North Loch which is teeming with birdlife and rare wild flowers and which has, as a consequence, been designated a site of scientific interest. Add to that its very private location, then there can be few better places to build a holiday home or for children to spend their summers.
The North Loch also has exceptionally large and beautiful, wild Brown Trout in it with fish up to 8lbs being caught regularly and the fishing is free. It is re-stocked regularly by The Orkney Trout Association and holds huge number of wildfowl in the winter months which feed in Tankfield.
Mains water on site and electricity nearby. Good access.
