Buy an uninhabited Scottish island for less than you might think

Pirates, there's an uninhabited Scottish island up for sale, situated in the Irish Sea, and it's going for a seriously interesting price. It's cheaper than living in a cupboard in London! 😅.

The island is located directly across from the Isle of Man. Completely deserted and only accessible by boat or, during low tide, by foot from the mainland. You'll need to build something, but just imagine being able to say "I'm heading to my private island in Scotland!" How cool is that?

So, if you're curious to find out if this amazing opportunity is right for you, check out the details below!

Uninhabited Scottish island for sale

Barlocco Island is 24 acres (roughly the size of 18 football fields) and completely uninhabited and has a spectacular view and location.

It is the westernmost of the Fleet Islands and is approximately 9 miles from the town of Kirkcudbright. On the island, as mentioned, there are no buildings or structures. There is a pond that provides water for livestock and wildlife during the winter months, and on the western side, there is a pebble beach where a boat can be moored or anchored.

The island can also be accessed during low tide on foot, with a tractor or a quad. You can find an informational brochure here.

The base price for this island is £150,000, which is a steal! Building a traditional dwelling on the island is limited due to its protected status. But hey, who needs a traditional house when you have your own private island?

So, what do you think? Shall we team up and get our very own Pirate island? :-)
