Uniquely positioned island property
In their spectacular clifftop position as Orkney's most northwestern property, Longhouse Farm and the Land at Bisgeos offer a ringfenced holding and an opportunity for a purchaser wishing to take on an existing and equipped agricultural property.
The property is available in two lots, which are currently farmed and managed as part of a larger agricultural holding.
Longhouse Farm included a single storey farmhouse, set alongside the farmyard providing cattle housing, feed and general storage and workshops. The farmlands extending directly from the farmyard.
The Land at Bisgeos, adjoining Longhouse Farm, consists of grasslands on which sheep currently graze.
The land on both lots is predominately grassland arranged in large, fenced and gated fields.
