Tanera Mòr, the largest member of Scotland’s Summer Island Archipelago has this week been put up for sale with a guide price of GBP 2.5 million
An island unlike any other has this week entered the private island market with a bargain guide price of only GBP 2.5 million. After talks of a community buy-out ground out to a halt, managing duo Richard and Lizzie Williams have taken the difficult decision to put the island up for sale after 17 years of family ownership.
Located just off the coast of north-western Scotland, Tanera Mòr is every inch the picture book Scottish island, comprising of 800 acres of awe-inspiring countryside and with a storied history to match. Occupied since the Viking era, the island forms the only inhabited island within the Summer Island Archipelago and is popular amongst holiday-goers keen to escape the rat-race.
Wonderfully remote, yet with an impressive array of amenities, the island is home to a series of holiday lettings, a sailing school, a café and even a post office which issues its own stamps. Sure to attract the attention of hoteliers keen to make a mark on Scotland’s ever-growing holiday trade, the prosperous leisure industry on Tanera Mòr is certainly one of the island’s unique selling points.
Local property expert John Bound said of the sale: “The chance to own your own Scottish island is extremely rare and with Tanera Mòr’s thriving tourist enterprise coupled with being a truly spectacular place to live, we expect there will be a lot of interest as it goes on the open market.” Offering obvious business incentives, an unforgettable island lifestyle and an attractive price tag, we’re certain that a buyer will emerge in no time at all.
