If you are looking for a residence that incorporates a high standard of rural living, then look above to St Ola, Orkney, and a ten-bedroomed house for under £1 million. Perhaps have, in the garden, a replica of the houseboat from Stronsay, also in the Orkney group? A persuasive factor could be the annual survey of rural areas for standards of living by the Halifax Building Society which placed Orkney top. There was an irony about it in that this year's criteria included the provision of health clubs and leisure centres. Many consider that these are naturally built-into the Orcadian environment.
