Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Now the island of Tanera Mòr is for sale and for only £2.5 million


I wonder if the rules for selling islands are the same as for soft-tops (convertibles)?

Unless you positively, definitely, have to, must sell it tomorrow, then you keep it under cover until the first sunshine of spring greets the World with blue and cloudless skies. Failing to do so reportedly knocks a whole chunk of money of the price you can expect to set and get.

Tanera Mòr is the largest and only inhabited island in the Summer Isles in Wester Ross, and cover approximately 800 acres (324 ha).

It is now being offered on the open market by its current owners (the Wilder family) after the local Coigach community declined the option of a buyout due to the number of local project they already have underway. The family bought the island in 1996, after selling their dairy farm in Wiltshire.

The island comes with six properties for holiday letting, a sailing school, and a café and Post Office. The latter were developed within an old boathouse, and the Post Office has permission to issue its own stamps.

Tanera Mòr island has been placed on the market with a guide price of £2.5 million.

The sale is being handled by the Inverness office of property consultants CKD Galbraith.

Looks as if there was once some industry on the island, as there is also a photograph of an old abandoned herring factory:

They seem to have a thing about the old red telephone box there too.

I wonder of any of them work?


In April 2014, the price was cut by more than £500,000…

A PRIVATELY-OWNED Ross-shire island is on the market once again – with its price tag slashed by over half a million pounds.

Tanera Mòr, an 800-acre island in Wester Ross, was put up for sale last May at an asking price of offers over £2.5 million.

But despite attracting worldwide interest, no buyer could be found for Tanera, the largest and only inhabited island of the Summer Isles which lie off Achiltibuie.

Now selling agents Savills and CKD Galbraith are jointly marketing the island for offers over £1,950,000.
