JIMMY Savile’s Highland home is being sold off later this month with a £100,000 price tag.

The whitewashed cottage in Glencoe will go under the hammer at auction in Glasgow.

Proceeds from the sale will be added to the disgraced presenter’s estate to help pay compensation to his hundreds of sex-abuse victims.

Glasgow-based property firm Ross Harper Property Auctions confirmed that Savile’s Allt-Na-Righ home is included in their auction at Glasgow’s Grand Central Hotel on 30 May.

The sale comes as vandals once again targeted the home – smashing windows and writing “Glen Savile” across the front wall in red paint.

A spokesman at Ross Harper said: “Obviously there has been a lot of interest in this property and it is included in our list for auction at the end of the month with a guide price of £100,000. Full details of the property will be available shortly.”
