Scottish island yours for £2.5m

A small Scottish island has been put up for sale for £2.5 million. Tanera Mor is the largest and only inhabited island in the Summer Isles archipelago, 1.5 miles off the north-west coast of Scotland.

The 800-acre island is currently managed by Lizzie and Richard Williams, who took it on from Mrs Williams' family, the Wilders. The Wilders bought the island in 1996 after selling their dairy farm in Wiltshire.

Mrs Williams said it is time to give someone else the privilege of owning “the amazing place”.

Talks with the local community over a buyout were held but it has now been put on the open market after the Coigach Community Development Company decided not to pursue the sale.

The island has nine residential properties, a café, post office and three jetties.
