It is a rare opportunity to own a 800-acre Scottish island which has been occupied since the time of the Vikings. Tanera Mor, the island in the Summer Isles in Wester Ross is now on sale for whopping £2.5m. The Wilder family have been proud owners of the island since 1996. The land was an investment by the family after the sale of their dairy farm in the Wiltshire.
The current caretakers of the island, Lizzie & Richard Williams, daughter and son-in-law of Mr.Wilder, have expressed their desire to put up the island for sale. Discussions are being held with the local community, Coigach, regarding sale and whether they may consider on buying the island. However, with Coigach community having too many projects up their sleeves already, the deal has been declined. Irrespective of the unsuccessful deal, the Coigach community have been very supportive of the sale.
The sale is currently under the supervision and execution by the property consultant, CKD Galbraith. John Bound, of the CKD Galbraith has highlighted Tanera Mor as ‘not just a mere island,’ but its breathtaking locations and rich heritage will definitely win the hearts of many. The island is a perfect family residence. Even though Tanera Mor has experienced the livelihood of the Vikings, it now has a cafe and a post office. This island will not just be an investment for interested parties but it will be a home away from home, Tanera Mor.
