Pladda Island, a private island with its own lighthouse, has just gone on the market for £350,000, or around $426,267.
The property, listed by Knight Frank, is located less than a mile from the Isle of Arran.
Pladda Island is made up of nearly 28 acres of land.
It is located 31 miles from Glasgow.
There is a lighthouse on the island, which was first installed in 1790.
It became fully automated in the 1990s and is now monitored remotely by the Northern Lighthouse Boards headquarters in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The traditional lantern and lens have been replaced with solar-powered LED lights atop the tower, a Knight Frank spokesperson told Insider.
The island comes with a five-bedroom house.
The former lighthouse keeper’s house also includes two living rooms and a bathroom, as well as a kitchen and a freezer.
Knight Frank’s listing says the house has not been used in recent years and “needs upgrading”.
There are also a pair of modern outbuildings on the property.
The outbuildings include another bedroom, as well as a kitchen, living room and shower.
There are also additional dependencies currently in use for storage that have “development potential,” according to the listing.
Inside the island is an enclosed garden that spans 2.5 acres.
The garden, with high stone walls, was previously used to grow fruit and vegetables for the former lighthouse keeper.
Pladda Island is only accessible by boat or helicopter.
It has a stone pier, as well as a helipad.
The island is an important breeding ground and stopover for many migrating seabirds.
According to Knight Frank, over 100 species of birds have been recorded on Pladda Island.
Successful breeding colonies include arctic terns, turnstones, shags, and a variety of gull species.
You will see magnificent views of the south coast of Arran and Northern Ireland.
Kildonan, the nearest village to Arran, has a village store, post office, campsite and hotel.
Nearby Arran offers spectacular scenery, as well as plenty of outdoor activities.
Fishing, mountain biking, rock climbing, sailing, golf, hiking and diving are all available on Arran when you need to mix things up with remote living on Pladda.
And the surrounding sea is full of dolphin pods.
You may also spot large basking sharks, otters and sometimes even a colony of seals.
