Property Summary

Karen at Monster Moves is delighted to bring this adorable cottage to the market which is situated on the beautiful Island of Stronsay.  The property benefits from panoramic sea views and a short walk way down to the sea shore.  Gesty Dishes has been renovated sympathetically to ensure the property maintains its traditional style along with additional quirky features.

There is an oil central heating system which has recently been installed along with a Yucon pot belly stove in the living room and an oil fired Rayburn in the dining room.

Stronsay is an Outer North isle and is accessible by plane or ferry from Kirkwall, Orkney Mainland.
