A spokeswoman for agents Galbraith in Inverness said the house, in the west of Skye, offered a “rare opportunity” to create a contemporary home in one of the most popular destinations on the island.

The house, which is reached by a single track public road, is made up of four rooms on the ground floor and two rooms and a box room on the first floor. Such is the poor state of the cottage, some of the rooms are not safe to access.

The agents said there was potential to renovate the existing building or demolish and rebuild the property, subject to planning permission.
