The charming Holm of Huip Island stretches over a surface area of approximately 250,000 square meters. Whilst most of its beaches are made up of slate and stone, a long, sandy beach can also be found towards the south of the island, close to the ruins of an old, stone house. As with the two farmhouses, it would be possible to either renovate or rebuild these ruins in order to make the buildings habitable.
The island can certainly be described as well-connected – as well as a daily flight from Kirkwall - the capital of Scotland’s Orkney Islands – to Stronsay (the small town directly opposite the Holm of Huip), it is also possible to make the short journey (approx. one and a half hours) via ferry. From the small harbor in Stronsay, it is possible to then make the transfer to Holm of Huip via either rowing boat or by motor boat.
