Property Overview

Hoxa head, is one of the biggest first & second world war sites in the whole of the UK. This is a fantastic opportunity to own something incredibly unique.

Property Details

The 112-acre site was one of the most important strategic bases in the North of the UK during both the First and Second World War.

The site helped guard Orkney during both World Wars and is one of the largest wartime structures in Scotland.

its position looks out over one of the main approaches to Scapa Flow, which was an important Royal Navy strategic base in the north of the UK.

However, now the impressive panorama draws thousands of visitors every year to make the pilgrimage to the settlement on South Ronaldsay.

Scattered along the rugged coastline are gun and searchlight emplacements, along with the batteries on the Floatta. Unlike most of the other battery sites in Scotland, the foundations and plinths of the military camps which served there can still be seen.

About the area

This wild group of more than 70 islands off the northern tip of Scotland's mainland are well worth the journey, with history and wildlife galore.

You will get a real sense of getting away from it all in Orkney. Only 17 of the islands are inhabited and most locals live in the main towns of Kirkwall and Stromness.

The quiet sandy beaches, stunning scenery, abundance of wildlife, fresh, quality cuisine and warm welcoming hospitality make these islands an ideal place for a relaxing visit or an action-packed holiday.

Orkney's history goes back more than 4,500 years to the earliest dwellings of Neolithic people. The most impressive of these is at Skara Brae. The Heart of Neolithic Orkney is a UNESCO World Heritage Site made up of Neolithic monuments, stone circles, tombs and a settlement.

Fun fact: you can take the world's shortest flight in the Orkneys - between the islands of Westray and Papa Westray.

The easiest and quickest way to get to Orkney is to fly from Edinburgh, which takes just over an hour.
