Full description

The Principal Lightkeeper's house and 2 Assistant Lightkeeper's cottages are set in an elevated position offering breath-taking views over the Pentland Firth. The property is presently a successful self catering business but would equally lend itself to a large or extended family seeking tranquillity.

The two exquisite 2 bedroom cottages offer a high standard of holiday accommodation and are deservedly popular. Both cottages stand in excellent decorative order and have electric heating. Cottage 1 has a living room and a large dining room with kitchenette together with a shower room. In cottage 2 the kitchenette is off the living room.

The detached Principal Lightkeeper's house has 3 bedrooms together with a living room, dining room, office, bathroom and kitchen with pantry. External store room. The two storey property has UPVC framed double glazed windows and electric heating. It may be possible to reinstate an enclosed fire in the living room.

Situated between the cottages and the house are a laundry, store and workshop. There are several stores within the large walled garden.

Cantick Head is at the south east tip of Longhope which itself is at the south end of the island commonly referred to as Hoy. Hoy is one of Orkney’s south isles and its amenities include a junior secondary school, swimming pool, theatre/cinema, general store and post office. There are many places of scenic and archaeological interest and the island is connected to the Orkney mainland by the regular roll-on, roll-off ferries.

Interested parties should note that the Northern Lighthouse Board have retained ownership of the lighthouse and the building to the side of the lighthouse together with access to both and including the use of a helicopter pad.
