Old Croft house and 1 acre of land

Orkney. Scotland.

For Sale

Stunning sea views over Orkney. south & west facing gardens. This land used to form part of a large croft on the northwest side of the north Orkney island of Eday. The old croft house still remains. built using dry stone walls 500cm deep. a small area still remains which had been an old barley store and flag stone flooring. this would need complete renovation to become a house or built up to make stunning out buildings.

Full planning permission has be granted to site a new 3 bed house on the land. the planning includes siting of a static caravan. We will be including a static caravan  with this sale. the caravan is fully equipped. gas cooker. fridge. kitchen/dining room. lounge with wood burner. shower/wc. combi gas water heater and double bedroom. The island's Eday partnership own a “gateway house” which can be rented at a very low £390pm for 3 bed accommodation if you would rather rent than live on site. Details can be found on their website.

There is approx. 1 acre of well fenced land which has been grazed by sheep for 12 months. a private fenced track running up to the land and is approx. 50 meters from the road where water. Elec and phone services can be connected. The land has its own private water supply from a new borehole and a well. an extra bonus of this land is the quarry. the stunning red stone of Eday has been used to build many houses. including this croft but the stone for this croft was cut on site from its own quarry. the quarry is still in use and stone can easily be cut by hand.



The Island of Eday

Eday is one of the islands of Orkney. which are located to the north of the Scottish mainland. One of the North Isles. Eday is about 24 kilometres (15 mi) from the Orkney Mainland. With an area of 27 square kilometres (10 sq mi). it is the ninth largest island of the archipelago. The bedrock of the island is Old Red Sandstone. which is exposed along the sea-cliffs.

There are various well-preserved Neolithic tombs. as well as evidence of Bronze Age settlement and the remains of a Norse-era castle. During the period of Scottish rule the substantial property of Carrick House was developed at Calfsound. which became a burgh for a short period. During the British era many agricultural improvements were introduced. although there has been a substantial decline in the population since the mid-nineteenth century. In the twenty-first century the Eday Partnership has had success in promoting the island's economy. Local placenames reflect the diverse linguistic heritage and the landscapes of the island and its surrounding seas attract abundant wildlife.

The island has a long running but recently renovated co-op shop which is very well stocked and takes delivery 3 times a week of fresh goods from the mainland. a PO and coffee room overlooking the islands loch and standing stone.  On island postmen deliver post daily.  Just like everywhere else in the UK.

Deliveries via courier (hermes. dpd. parcel force etc) are taken via haulage to the shop or pier and can be delivered to your door by arrangement.

The island school. where all the islands children go. is run by a small team of nursery staff. principle teacher and teaching assistants.

A large array of island events go on monthly including darts. bars. gala week. ranger activities and much more. island community groups are always looking for new ideas from incomers.

Daily transport

It's so easy to travel to and from Eday. whether by sea or air. the island is just 1 hour from the mainland and city of Kirkwall where you will find leisure facilities. theaters. bars and pubs. supermarkets and so much more. the flight takes only 15min and is subsidised to allow a very affordable option for a quick nip into town.

Legal
