Any houses coming on the market Shetland/Orkney?
« on: July 05, 2021, 02:50:05 pm »
Looking to see if anyone has any properties with land to come on the market in Shetland or Orkney (I know how remote it is and would suit me fine)
 
Enough land needed to keep my horses, sheep and ideally rear some cattle.

Don't mind something that needs modernising, or that could be sold privately.

There are plenty of houses with land for sale in Orkney:

I have seen much cheaper than that though.
I wish we had prices like that over here 😕

How about this?
152 acres for 95k!!!

Including an old house and a church. Both needing renovation however. It does have grid electricity and own water supply.

If it has fast Internet connected I wouldn't mind moving there myself  :roflanim:

Yeah, a friend of ours is looking for a property with land in Orkney. He's lost out four times so far. Last time he offered 75k over the asking price. It went for 125k over the asking price. Orkney is popular.

So Orkney is becoming the new Cornwall (of the North) then.... loads of blow-ins arriving?

Not Orkney/Shetland, but if you're after remote there's a nice little place on the market with HSPC at Badlaurach which in just South of the Scorraig peninsula.  A lovely spot but still fairly remote.
