Private Scottish island goes on sale for less than a one-bed apartment in Glasgow

A private island off the northwest coast of Scotland has been put up for sale and it could be yours for less than the price of an apartment in Glasgow.

The island, named Càrn Deas, which refers to the South Island in Scottish Gaelic, is on the market for just £ 50,000 – that’s less than the majority of homes in the world, in fact.

“The private postal service on the largest summer island, Tanera Mòr was inaugurated on September 1, 1970 with the approval of the post office. In return for administering the postal service to and from the mainland, the owners are licensed to issue private summer islands postage stamps, and these are highly sought after by collectors. “

The uninhabited 22.54 acre island is part of the Summer Isles archipelago which is made up of a group of rugged and exquisitely beautiful islands located just four miles off the coast of Ullapool.

If that isn’t enough to get you to pack your bags and set sail, the waters around it are said to be crystal clear, making it a perfect place to sailing, scuba diving and fishing while offering spanoramic view of wildlife and birds.



You may be able to build a Bothy on the island.

The island, which is in the Assynt-Coigach National Scenic Area, is connected by a pebble spit to a separate island known as Càrn Iar which is also uninhabited. The spit is a narrow coastal land formation linked to the coast at one end, usually composed of sand or pebbles that have been formed by the coastal movement of sediment.

If you think you’d like to sit outside and try to spot wildlife in its waters, you may encounter porpoises, dolphins, whales, basking sharks, and even otters – great for photographers and wildlife watchers. .
