If you're looking for a complete escape and fancy owning a private island then Insh island may be a dream buy. With only cottage ruins and a cave (in which is thought that the previous owner lived for a few years), the island is close to Oban and is on the market for a guide price of £125,000 with Dawsons - a budget of which is less than a central Edinburgh flat.

This private island extends to just over 90 acres and is situated in the Firth of Lorne.
