AN ENTIRE Scots island is on the market for £350,000 – which is less than the price of a flat in Glasgow’s west end.
Pladda Isles, a remote and dramatic island, lies just south of the coast of Arran and comes with incredible extras.
The huge island spans across almost 28 acres and comes with an “extensive range” of buildings.
With breathtaking views and scenery, the island has plenty to offer, but will need some renovation work.
It comes with a huge lighthouse – which was first lit in the 1790s – and the former lighthouse keeper’s house.
The home comes with five large bedrooms, but is not currently habitable as it hasn’t been used in many years.
The island features a stunning 2.5 acre walled garden, a helipad and a stone jetty.
There is also a bothy which has a specious double bedroom and kitchen area.
The island, which is listed by estate agents Knight Frank, has views that faces both Kintyre and the Ayrshire coasts from one side, Ailsa Craig from another, and can even see out to Northern Ireland.
And interested buyers can get all of this for less than what it could cost to buy a flat in Glasgow’s west end.
A two-bedroom flat in Bowmont Gardens, Dowanhill, with two bathrooms is currently listed on Rightmove for offers over £375,000.
According to Northern Lighthouse Board, the keeper of the island’s lighthouse withdrew in 1990 when the station became automated.
It is now being monitored remotely from Edinburgh.
There is also a large variety of wildlife surrounding the island and has previously been close to dolphins, seals and even basking sharks.
Knight Frank said that more than 100 different species of bird have been recorded on the island in the past.
This includes breeding colonies of Arctic Terns, various gulls, Turnstones and Shags.
