East Langamay is a 2 bedroom detached bungalow and is situated on the picturesque island of Sanday, which is one of the Orkney North isles. The property has 2 barns attached to it.  The property also benefits from a wind turbine which has helped it achieve the highest level of energy performance certificate rating along with its external insulation which was recently installed.

Sanday is an outer isle which is a short sea crossing or a 13 minute flight from mainland Orkney.  It is currently one of the larger inhabited islands with around 550 people living there.  Sanday sits on the north coast of Scotland and is famous for its sandy bays and clear water around it, along with a wealth of wildlife, heritage and archaeology.   Sanday has a wonderful community spirit with a school, two well stocked shops, 2 pubs and a community hub.  For the sporting enthusiasts there is a 9 hole golf course, football pitches, indoor sports hall, swimming pool and gym.  There is a resident Dr and 2 nurses plus a garage/repair shop.  During lockdown the island was self sufficient and supplies were plentiful.
