HY45SE 66.00 Holland House

The fine, mid-nineteenth century stone building of the Holland farm complex includes a horse-engine house, circular within and without, with a conical flagstone-covered roof; although the machinery has gone and the side-openings have been built up, the building is in excellent repair.

Orkney Smr Note (June 1982)

The traditional stone-built structures of the Holland farm

complex are all of unusual quality. Best among them is a horse

engine house, circular inside and out; all but one of the

original side-openings have been built up, and the machinery,

together with one of the two massive cross-beams which supported

it, has been removed; but the flagstone-covered conical roof has

been well restored by the owner, who uses the building for

storing hay.
