Liverpool, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 04, 2009 -- The countryside is mountainous with deep glassy lakes. The Orkney Islands offers an unparallelled opportunity to get away from it all, whether you're looking for total seclusion or something more active.
This is your opportunity to own your own private island. A piece of Scotland Could be 'Yours'
And with this island comes a title, Lord & Lady .................................... of Kili Holm.
Enjoying Scotland's distinct culture, refreshingly different from the rest of the British Isles.
The Isle of Kili Holm is located off the coast of Egilsay in the beautiful scenic Orkney Islands. The Orkney Islands are located off the northern tip of Scotland where the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean meet.
The Orkney Islands are low-lying, gently sloping and richly fertile with the exception of the island of Hoy, which is high and rugged. The climate is temperate, warmed by the Gulf Stream.
From April to October you can make the most of the long hours of daylight and the best of the weather.
Your own secluded coastline to watch the waves rolling in, the Wild Life and the âAurora Borealisâ.
Orkney History The Orkney Islands have been occupied for around 9 millennia and the big skies and empty spaces belie a deep and intricate human history. Hunter gatherers first arrived after the Ice Age retreat in around 7000 BCE and society gradually moved through the millennia and ages, from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic to the Bronze and Iron Ages, into the Christian influence around the 580 CE. The islands were invaded and colonised by the Vikings from 780 onwards - they established a kingdom of 'Earls' who ruled the islands on behalf of Norway until 1231 when Earl Jon Haraldsson was murdered, the last of the Norse line. The Scottish noblemen of Angus took over as the Earls of Orkney, though allegiance was still sworn to Norway. Christianity found its greatest Orkney hero in the martyrdom of St. Magnus, who was murdered by his cousin Hakon in 1117. A cathedral in his honour was built in 1137, sited in the islands' capital of Kirkwall. The Islands eventually defaulted to the Scottish Crown in 1472.
The Isle of Kili Holm has fourteen acres above sea level and a further fourteen acres exposed at low tide. At very low tide one can walk to the main island Egilsay.
The buyer of the Island of Kili Holm will become a Scottish Laird (Lord) and his wife or partner will also be known as Lady ....(your surname).. of Kili Holm.
