“Dore Holm” is a small islet off the south coast of Eshaness. It is a natural arch, the shape has been compared to a horse drinking deeply from the water. There is an etching of the “Dore Holm” on an internal glazed door into the hallway.

In 2015 the owner renewed the kitchen, shower room, both external doors and installed a new combi boiler. The roof was fully replaced at the end of 2017. The accommodation is in good decorative order and located on the ground floor with a ladder giving access to the attic store. There is a large garden with a shed and greenhouse and a separate parking area.

Dore Holm has fine unrestricted views all year around but in February each year there is a spectacular view of the Northmavine Up Helly Aa procession walking along the road from Hillswick to Urafirth with the burning on the loch to the north of Dore Holm.
