Seems to have been a bit of coming and going in Mossbank recently and I know of 1 house that has just been vacated.

Has the downturn in oil and gas employment affected rental prices? I haven't been paying attention!

The cheapest log cabin kit you can get I notice is £12,000 from Argos !

I've seen houses with land go for less than £15,000..

Yes, some plots are expensive, but they are in expensive areas. :-)

 

There are quite a lot of different low cost building solutions, I'm quite a fan of earth sheltering myself, and concrete.

After all, I live in a concrete home myself. :-)

Not dome shaped though..

Building a house for 30k is possible, problem is planning and building regs get in the way so it drives up the price massively, plus the cost of land with services

Property in Shetland is not the cheapest available in the U. K. It is cheaper to buy in an awful lot of places. Having said that, Shetland is the best and always has been!!!

 

Cheap property

Funny, I couldn't find a log cabin kit for such a good price but then again I don't shop with Argos. I did find some log cabins for about £11,500 cheaper. £460 - now that's value!!!

 

Log cabin

You see them around advertised in estate agents, postcodes in shops, once saw one advertised I think in the classified advert section on this site !

 

If you check sold house prices, you can see some examples where I am:

> £12,000     Residential     15 Sep 2016     

>   Keldabrun, Baltasound, Unst, Shetland, Oaz ZE2 9DS
> £10,500     Residential     16 Jun 2014

One solution is instead of spending money connecting to services, is to provide your own. (I'd like to be off grid producing my own electricity for example.)

 

 

I'd be interested if anyone happens to know the cost of your own sewage systems.
