> Overview

Cott is a spacious 3 bedroom dwellinghouse with outbuildings set in 8.3 acres or thereby. The property is situated in the picturesque island of Egilsay, which is one of Orkney’s inner north isles and offers a beautiful sea view from its elevated position. There is a large R.S.P.B. reserve on the island. The dwellinghouse has electric heating and UPVC framed double glazed windows, except the entrance porch which has 3 large wooden framed double glazed windows. The spacious living room has 3 windows and the kitchen has a solid fuel Rayburn range (which requires a flue pipe) and room for a dining table. There is a 3 piece suite with electric shower over the bath together with plumbing for a washing machine in the bathroom. Each of the bedrooms has a panel heater, bedroom 1 has a walk-in cupboard and bedrooms 2 and 3 have a built-in wardrobe. The outbuildings include 3 stores, the first has a low internal wall dividing the building and the second is partly roofed with one end open to the elements. The third is a building of traditional construction which requires attention. The garden includes trees and paths together with several vegetable plots. The land is mostly rough grass together with a wetter area. Egilsay is connected to the Orkney mainland by a scheduled, roll-on roll-off ferry service and has a community centre. Primary school age pupils attend the school on the neighbouring island of Rousay and secondary pupils attend Kirkwall Grammar School with school transport meeting the ferries.
