Inchlonaig Island, which contains a two bedroom cottage and three bothies, is on the market for offers over £995,000
An island situated in Loch Lomond that has links to Robert the Bruce has gone on the market for offers of just under £1 million.
Inchlonaig Island, which means the Island of Yew Trees, is described as a “historic piece of Scottish heritage” and offers “spectacular surroundings” to a buyer seeking an escape to the wilderness.
The island, the most northern in Loch Lomond, contains a two bedroom cottage and three derelict bothies, as well as a jetty for launching and landing boats.
Extending to just under 182 acres, the island includes around 800 yew trees – some of which were said to have been planted by Robert the Bruce, who inhabited the land in the 14th century.
The isle is mentioned in a charter of 1541 and was used as pasture land for cattle in the 1600s. Fallow and white deer can still be seen inhabiting the island.
The village of Luss is situated a short distance away on the western shores of Loch Lomond, and the pier offers waterbus services linking Balloch, Inchcailloch, Balmaha and Rowardennan.
Cameron Ewer, handling the sale for Savills, said the island represents an “incredible” opportunity to purchase a piece of Scottish heritage for £995,000.
He said: “This is an exciting launch from a historic perspective.
“However, it also represents an incredible and rare opportunity to acquire a piece of Scottish heritage while enjoying the spectacular surroundings of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
“Inchlonaig Island is perhaps the ultimate in private retreats and a very special sale.”
