CLOSING DATE SET FOR OFFERS - 4PM WEDNESDAY 14TH NOVEMBER 2018.
The uninhabited islands of Faray, Holm of Faray and Red Holm are situated between the islands of Westray and Eday, within the archipelago of Orkney. The 3 islands are offered for sale together and may appeal to those who wish to create their own island retreat or holiday accommodation. Faray extends to 310 acres (125 ha) or thereby and the Holm of Faray extends to 73 acres (29 ha) or thereby.

Orkney is a group of 70 islands, 19 of which are inhabited, located off the north coast of Scotland.

Faray, the largest of the 3 islands, was last inhabited c.1947 when the last 8 residents left. There are a number of ruinous dwellinghouses scattered across the island together with a bothy which is housed in the former school.

The island is mainly to grass and has several beautiful sandy beaches together with rocky shorelines and cliffs. There is a wide variety of bird life together with seals along the shoreline.

Faray and Holm of Faray are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Special Areas of Conservation because of their important breeding and haul out sites for grey seals.

To the south end of the island is a jetty for access to and from the island.
