Buy your own village on the isle of Skye

Mary's Cottages, Elgol are four thatched cottages on the Isle of Skye that are being sold together with a five-bedroomed owner's house as a lifestyle business.

The smaller houses are traditional Hebridean blackhouses.

Over the last 20 years, two have been restored, created from the stones of ruins which stood on the property, while two are newly built but very sympathetically matched to the originals.
