Want to Own a Scottish Island?

Leading independent property consultantsGalbraith are marketing, Little Ross Island, a 29 acre(rather more at low tide, although the additional land is owned by Her Majesty the Queen!) island in the estuary to the south of Kirkcudbright in the south west of Scotland.  Price, offers over 325,000 British pounds. 

The island includes a 6 bedroom house, formerly 2 lighthouse Keepers Cottages, 2 dilapidated walled gardens and associated barns and workshops. To access the Island there is a small harbour and slipway and a jetty, both accessible at high tide.

The operational Lighthouse Tower is owned and managed by the Commissioners for Northern Lighthouses. A lease, signed in 1841, permits the lighthouse to operate from the Island, essentially in perpetuity. Since automation in 1961 the lighthouse no longer requires full time staffing.
