Island life

Little Ross Island, off the coast of south west Scotland, is up for grabs for £325,000 – about the same price as a two-bedroom flat in Edinburgh city centre.

An entire Scottish island is on sale for just £325k - but it has a disturbing past

A Scottish island which became famous for a high-profile murder case more than 50 years ago has been put on the market for just £325,000.

Little Ross Island, off the coast of south west Scotland, stretches to 29 acres and is completely off-grid. The property listing includes a six-bedroom, B-listed cottage, ripe for renovation.

David Corrie, senior associate at agents Galbraith said: “Private islands rarely come up for sale at an affordable price and particularly one with a habitable house and additional properties. We expect a lot of interest.”
