A deserted island of more than 90,000 square meters is for sale for a price that starts at 59,000 euros ($70,000) – the average price for a property in Edinburgh is around 300k in some parts — so prospective buyers are starting to show up. The uninhabited island spans over 22.54 acres and is part of Summer Isles archipelago. Càrn Deas, is surrounded by crystal waters and is home to a rugged coastline.
Although there are no housing structures or access to water or electricity, the island has a special charm because of its location, plus a huge diversity of marine life. It offers huge potential for water-based activities. The island is about 25 minutes by boat from Badentarbat Pier or Old Dornie Harbour, two ports located in the north of Scotland.
The Goldcrest Land & Forestry Group has put Càrn Deas up for sale labeling it as a “small, robust and romantic” island that is a great investment opportunity. Many fishing boats travel to this area to catch cod, lobsters and shrimp. There are plenty of dolphins, whales, seals, and sharks to be seen.
In a statement to Fox Business, the company said that “the island is still on the market but has attracted enormous national and international interest since it was put up for sale on Thursday, September 2nd.”
