Coll, Hebrides: A Shore Thing

The Independent Online

Situated in a stunning location on the unspoilt Hebridean Island of Coll (population a mere 160), Arinthluic is the ultimate get-away-from-it-all house with three bedrooms, a large garden and its own kilometre of rocky coastline, which includes several small inlets and a sandy beach immediately in front of the house.

Sounds too idyllic to be true? It gets better. The whole area is a birdwatcher's paradise; seals and otters frequent the shoreline; and there are views to Mull, the Treshnish Islands, the Dutchman's Cap and the Paps of Jura. There are also many prehistoric sites on the island.

The house is near Coll's main village of Arinagour, which is a popular holiday destination with a restaurant and café, a post office, general store, hotel, churches, medical centre and a primary school.

Also included in the sale is a large steel shed/workshop with power and water, and a derelict cottage 40 metres to the west of the main house, for which planning permission has been obtained for a one-bedroom dwelling. The property is set within 48 acres of land which have been recently fenced. Fitted carpets, curtains and white goods are included in the sale price. Offers over £220,000 are invited.
