LYING in total seclusion and only reachable by boat in the winter months, this former lighthouse-keeper’s cottage has gone on sale for £225,000.
The 156-year-old property on the Isle of Mull is about one mile north of Tobermory.
It has no water or electricity and is accessible only via a winding one-mile hillside path which becomes impassable in winter, leaving any owner needing a boat to go anywhere.
But it is all made worthwhile by spectacular views to the Sound of Mull, 80 acres of surrounding land and a mile of shorefront which includes the Rubha nan Gall lighthouse.
Property agents Bell Ingram are looking for offers of £225,000 for the land and cottage, which has four bedrooms, a sitting room, study, parlour, WC, washroom and seven storerooms. A spokesman for the firm’s Oban office said: “This unique property offers superb potential for a buyer looking for the ultimate get-away-from-it-all property, or a property in a stunning setting that can be developed into a luxury home.”
A private spring is the only source of drinkable water, heat is provided by solid-fuel fires and paraffin or gas lamps are used for light in winter months.
