With Its Own Castle, Scottish Island Now Available for $112,000

Amidst a tumultuous year, individuals seeking solace may find intrigue in an available Scottish island, untouched by human presence. Its price at auction? A modest estimate of $112,000!

Spanning approximately 11 acres, Deer Island graces the scenic Loch Moidart on the West Coast. Known also as Eilean an Fheidh, it boasts close proximity to Fort William and Ben Nevis.

Future Property Auctions presents a rare opportunity to acquire a sanctuary of unparalleled privacy, describing the sale as a “One-of-a-kind chance to own an exclusive haven free from any intrusion.” Interestingly, the island is listed without any bedrooms.

Country Living expands on the island’s allure, highlighting its breathtaking countryside vistas, abundant wildlife, natural swimming spots, and immense potential for conversion into a family abode.

CNN reports that the island is home to red squirrels and seals, with occasional dolphin sightings for patient observers.

Adjacent to Deer Island lies Eilean Shona, owned by Vanessa Branson, sister of Richard Branson. CNN interviewed property manager Stephen McCluskey, who revealed that the neighboring expanse attracts various celebrities. However, peering at them through binoculars is not advised.

What type of individual would vie for or acquire this coveted yet remote location? Opting to solely purchase the land would prove to be a wise investment, as Metro highlights that Deer Island is priced the same as a garage in London.

For generations, the island was owned by Clanranald of Moidart, though Country Living notes that this is no longer the case. Nonetheless, the illustrious lineage dating back to the 14th century is bound to spark curiosity and conversation among potential buyers.
