Isle of Harris plot for sale for just £35,000 with spectacular views to Castaway island Taransay
It has to be one of the most scenic views in Scotland, and this slice of heaven is being offered to one lucky buyer for as little as £35,000.
The quarter acre site in the village of Bunavoneader on the Isle of Harris looks south across West Loch Tarbert towards the island of Taransay, where Ben Fogle first tasted stardom as one of the main faces in the BBC reality TV series Castaway.
And whichever adventurer is brave enough to take on the challenge of building a home here will be well-rewarded with a lifestyle which, although sometimes challenging, offers some of the world’s most stunning beaches such as Luskentyre and Seilebost and the Western Isles highest peak, The Clisham, within easy reach.
For outdoor enthusiasts there is some world-class surfing, challenging climbing, and wildlife in the form of whale watching and Golden Eagle spotting.
If fishing is your thing just along the road is Amhuinnsuidhe Castle looking out on to Loch Leosovay, teeming with salmon, and sea fishing expeditions. There are hopes of developing some of the biggest game fishing in Europe after a 500+lb bluefin tuna was bagged recently nearby.
And if it needs any further selling point, it is just yards away from perhaps the most bizarrely situated and remotest public tennis courts in all of Scotland, one which Sir Andy Murray has vowed to visit.
Of course, anyone buying a plot will need a house to be built on the site, and many local architects, like Stuart Bagshaw, have specialised in designing homes which fit in to the local landscape.
And for work, the buyer could maybe land themself a start at the distillery in nearby Tarbert creating and selling the world-famous Isle of Harris gin and its eagerly awaited first whisky, The Hearach.
