Garden and Transportation 

The house is surrounded by a half acre walled garden with three gates. This is bounded on the north east corner by the barns, which house the Egator.

Transport to Torsa is via a rigid tubed dinghy called Cutty which is kept on a running mooring and ingress/egress is by stepping over the side of her (approx. 1m height) onto the stone beach. There may be sea weed present which is a slip hazard. Please bear this in mind if you have leg or hip concerns.

There is no jetty, pontoon, pier, dock etc, which is why we recommend wellies!  

Once on land you have the use of an Egator electric buggy to carry luggage and shopping to the house.
