This 2 bedroom cottage (built circa 1900;s and renovated 1990) sits in a plot that extends to approx. 2.8 acres of land and includes a number of outbuildings. Blakkbanks benefits from a hosted wind turbine on its land, which offers free electricity when generating excess power.
There are a number of outbuildings traditionally built local stone that lend themselves to many uses.

Local facilities available in Eday include a Doctor’s surgery and a Co-op shop with post office. The school holds most island community events, however the Heritage centre also offers itself as a community venue.  There are B&Bs, a hostel and some Glamping pods for visitors to stay. The Ro-Ro ferries are regular and there is an airport offering travel to the mainland Orkney, where the full range of amenities are. There are picturesque views to be found all over Eday, which have to be seen to be appreciated
