Nether Linksness and Wester Linksness are two well presented stone-built cottages constructed of local materials in 1999 currently operated as a holiday lettings business, with a licensed café overlooking a beautiful sandy beach on the Orkney island of Hoy.

Both cottages have two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen/living room. Kitchens are equipped with cooker, microwave and kettle dishwasher and washing machine and further land may be available by separate negotiation.

Hoy is one of seventy islands which make up the archipelago of the Orkney Islands. The scenery is spectacular and the famous rock stack ‘The Old Man of Hoy’ juts out of the sea to the south of the island and is a popular destination for walkers and climbers. The beach near the property is just 50m away where you will see ducks, oyster catchers and seals. Local amenities can be found at the Lyness shop or by telephone from Stromness from where goods are delivered to you by Ferry for collection at the pier.

Offers are invited over £285,000. For further information please contact Strutt and Parker on 01463 719171 or visit www.struttandparker.co.uk.
