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.
