How about a complete change of lifestyle? How about living on a beautiful island with endless clean air, green fields and acres of space? Orkney is the UK’s best place to live according to the 2019 Bank of Scotland Quality of Life Survey - based on high employment levels, low crime rate, strong exam results, smaller primary class sizes and good health and happiness scores.

Green is a 150 acre freehold farm on Eday, one of Orkney's outer isles. There is a comfortable three bedroom family home situated centrally on the land, a beautiful self-catering holiday cottage (The Ruah) - and a 10 kW wind turbine.  

The farm is situated in a secluded position at the south-east of Eday with glorious views across to other islands. It is not overlooked from any direction but is just two minutes' drive from the pier. The farm is mainly permanent grassland along with some rough grazing and heather. The land has a variety of habitats including coastal heath, species rich grassland and a small area of wetland. There is about a kilometre of rocky shoreline and a sand/shingle beach.

Eday is one of the smaller Orkney Islands located to the north of the Scottish mainland. The range of different habitats - from sandy beaches, rocky shorelines, heath and moorland - makes it a superb haven for wildlife.

The island has a population of around 130 and has all the facilities a small community needs -  a Community Shop, transport links to Kirkwall on Orkney Mainland, a Health Practice and a Primary School.

    A furnished three bedroom family home in idyllic surroundings
    A fully equipped one bedroom cottage for holiday rental income or an additional permanent home
    Approximately a kilometre of shoreline
    Good agricultural land with a potential rental market if required
    A 10kW wind turbine - generating significant FITs income and reducing energy charges for the farm and Green
    A maintenance and repair workshop
    A large general purpose shed for housing livestock or vehicles and equipment
    Farm machinery included (tractor, trailer, mower, hay turner, baler etc)
    A productive poly tunnel and a large greenhouse both with borehole irrigation
    Basic Farm Payment entitlements
    Six derelict buildings with potential for development or replacement with new dwellings - subject to planning

This is an ideal opportunity to acquire a peaceful and productive farm with the potential to develop up to six new dwellings, offering an early return on investment.
