> Overview

Stackald enjoys a beautiful waterfront location on the picturesque island of Eday. The property has been developed as an equestrian holding and includes a 2-3 bedroom dwelling house, extensive range of outbuildings, approximately 17 acres or thereby and a taxi, car hire and island tours business.

Eday is one of Orkney’s outer north isles and its amenities include a primary school and co-operative shop. The island is connected to the Orkney mainland by scheduled air and ferry services.

The 2-3 bedroom dwelling house has double glazed windows and an oil fired Rayburn Royal range in the living room which heats the domestic hot water and two radiators. There are also electric storage heaters. There is a sun lounge/dining room and the kitchen has modern fitted base and wall cupboards incorporating a belfast sink, hob, oven and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is plumbing for a washing machine in the rear entrance vestibule.

The shower room has an electric shower and bedroom 2 has a wet room style en-suite shower room. There is a wood lined ceiling in bedroom 1 and bedroom 3/office houses the hosted wind turbine’s control unit.

The outbuildings include a range of traditional stone built buildings close to the house which have been divided into stables for ponies and livestock. There are also several hay sheds, stores and a garage together with a purpose built stable and a large general purpose shed. The stable is divided into 3 individual stables and a run-in and the general purpose shed has high sliding double doors. There is water and electricity to the stables and general purpose sheds.

The land is divided into 2 fields and several paddocks with most having water to them.

The taxi, car hire and island tours business generates a turnover of approximately £3,500 per annum and the sellers have approximately 3 years left of the school bus contract which may be made available to the purchaser. The purchaser would require to satisfy the requirements of Orkney Islands Council in this regard. A suitable bus, approximately 3 years old, is available for purchase by separate negotiation.
