Inchmarnock is an uninhabited island in Scotland on sale for £1.4million (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) Inchmarnock, an uninhabited island in Scotland, is now on sale for £1.4million. FYI, that’s the same price as a terraced house in London, and you get a full 660-acre Scottish island, your own farmhouse, and a ferry. Anyone fancy going halves? Or, um, quarters? Tenths? Inchmarnock is the dream spot for anyone fed up of life in the city. It’s right at the northern edge of Scotland, just a ten minute ferry ride from the seaside town of Rothesay. Back in its farming days, the island had a bustling population of 46. But its last permanent resident, a farmer, departed in 1986. It’s perfect if you’re fed up of living in the city (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) Along with your house you’ll also get a farm and plenty of deserted buildings to do with what you wish (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) And there’s a ferry, too (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) Since 1999 the island has been owned by a couple who have used the place’s farmhouse as a holiday home. They’re now selling it to anyone who fancies having an island all to themselves and also happens to have a spare million. It’s quite the bargain for the money, though. Just look at all that green (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) If you cough up £1.4million you not only get an entire island (2.5 miles long, half a mile wide, and with 4.75 miles of coastline, in case you were wondering), but also a lovely four-bed house, several uninhabited buildings, a farm, native woodland, a small private harbour, and a ferry. Here’s the farmhouse you would call home (Picture: Strutt&Parker) This is what the Port House looks like at the moment (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) You can redecorate if you’re not keen (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) It’s also got quite a cool history, having been a target of Viking raids and used as a D-Day training ground, with bomb craters still visible in its landscape. A farmer discovered the remains of a local Bronze Age woman, the Queen of the Inch, on the island in the 1960s. She lay in a stone cist wearing a black lignite necklace and carrying a flint dagger. The spot is also rumoured to have been popular with smugglers, thanks to its woodland and craggy shoreline, and there’s legend that back in the 1800s an alcoholic from Bute was sent to Inchmarnock to recover from her addiction. The island has an interesting history, having been the site of a Viking raid (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) The owners have put it on the market with estate agents Strutt & Parker. Diane Fleming, sales agent for Strutt & Parker in Edinburgh, said: ‘Inchmarnock is a stunning island rich in possibility. ‘There is already a successful farming enterprise and a lovely family home on the nearby shore of Bute but there is significant potential to build up the sportings, develop the existing residential offering and to capitalise on the various amenities offered by the island such as the native woodland, watersports and fishing. Meet your neighbours (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) If you want a quiet life, this is the place to go (Picture: Strutt&Parker/BNPS) ‘A Scottish island embodies the romance many people associate with the country’s prime estates and farms. [metro-zone-post-strip] ‘Inchmarnock is stunning with great heritage and is a peaceful and secluded haven, yet it is relatively accessible from Scotland’s central belt. ‘We expect significant interest from national and international buyers.’ We repeat, if anyone wants to split the cost, we’re down. The island will also be on our Christmas list.

I’m in my Roman bedroom, which looks nearly the same as it did three years ago. The various posters, photos, books, CDs, leaflets and random bric-à-brac that once had the role of marking the place as distinctively mine are right where I left them, starting to acquire a memorabilia-like aura though still seemingly linked to […]
