Stunning Scottish home on its very own island goes on the market

For less than the price of a London flat, you could own this unique home on a Scottish island

If you’ve got a spare million in the bank and the idea of a cramped London flat doesn’t do it for you then this one-of-a-kind home could be the answer.

Located off the north east tip of Kerrera on Scotland’s west coast, Rudh-A-Chruidh is a tidal island surrounded by stunning scenery. On the market for offers over
£950,000 with Savills, it’s a steal when compared to the prices of London homes!

Accessible by boat, or helicopter if you’re feeling fancy, the island features a striking three-bedroom contemporary house – and of course the 4 acres of island.

While the house itself is remarkable – from the open-plan reception rooms to the three en-suite bedrooms, it’s the views that really make this home stand out.

Built to take advantage of the amazing views over the bay and the Sound of Kerrera, the house features an abundance large of windows allowing the inhabitants to watch the ever-changing Scottish landscape.

The home was built in 2014 by architect Norman Hickson who was commissioned to build a modern home that blended into it’s beautiful surroundings. Norman describes the building as being ‘traditional but dynamic with a maritime influence.’

He said: ‘The relationship between the building and the water was a most important consideration and I wanted the occupants to stand in the kitchen, look out the window and feel like the building had it’s feet in the water.’

Not only is this home and its surroundings remarkably beautiful but the area is also a haven for wildlife – porpoises, dolphins and otters are occasionally seen in the Scottish waters.

So if a stunning island retreat with dolphins swimming past your door hasn’t convinced to swap that London studio for a quieter life, we don’t know what will!
