Life style change!
Orkney has recently been named the second best place in the UK for quality of life.
Detached 3 bedroomed property next to the sea on a beautiful, quiet yet well connected island which benefits from daily ferries and regular planes to mainland Orkney. There is a choice of three ferry routes and direct planes from mainland Orkney to Scottish mainland and beyond, with the benefit of islander discount schemes for travel.
The house stands on a 1/2 acre site with a landscaped garden and grounds which extend to the shore. The patio doors look out over the gardens to the sea with views of neighbouring islands. The house is warm and cosy in the winter from the rayburn and the property comes with peat rights which lets you cut peats in the traditional way if you want free fuel.
The master bedroom comes with en-suite and there is a separate second bathroom for the additional bedrooms and there is a garage complete with power and lights as well as a large driveway.
The island is the ideal place to retire, to bring up children or start a new life. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved in community life or plenty of space to simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity island life offers.
Eday is a small close knit community of around 130 people which is very supportive and welcoming of new people and new enterprises. There are excellent beaches, a small school, a community owned shop and a brand new health centre with daily surgeries with a nurse practitioner.
The Scottish government runs several schemes to help first time buyers including the open market shared equity scheme.
