This is a unique, lifestyle business opportunity to purchase a family home with purpose built studio and guest accommodation alongside.

Originally built by the late Kristin Linklater, who was a world-renowned teacher of voice production, the studio can cater for a wide variety of events and workshops and immersive training such as art, music, dance, yoga, wild swimming and much more. On completion of the restoration and extension of the house, Kristin Linklater was awarded the Laura Grimmond Award by The Orkney Heritage Society, which encourages and promotes excellence in the built environment in Orkney. Upper Housegarth would be ideal as owners family accommodation. Whilst operational, the centre was awarded a three star rating from Visit Scotland.

With extensive grounds of around 4.69 acres (1.9 hectares), including a man-made Amphitheatre, there are also opportunities for group outdoor activities. There may also be opportunity for further development with the appropriate planning consents.

Located on a secluded hillside in the West Mainland of Orkney, overlooking farmlands, sea and towards the Cliffs of Hoy, Upper Housegarth and the Kristin Linklater Voice Centre has an abundance of history and nature on its doorstep. Located nearby is the Bay of Skaill, the Neolithic archeological site of Skara Brae and The Ring of Brodgar Stone Circle and Henge which is an impressive ceremonial site dating back to the 3rd millennium bc.

The towns of Kirkwall and Stromness provide excellent independent shopping and dining experiences along with onward transport by ferry from both towns to and from the Scottish Mainland. Kirkwall Airport is located approximately 21 miles from Upper Housegarth.

For families with school age children, primary schooling is provided at Dounby Community School with older children attending Stromness Academy. Transport is available to both schools.
