Looking for a unique gift for that extra-special someone? Or a new home for a small community? Consider Tanera Mór, a private, self-sufficient island that's for sale in Scotland's northwest coast. The island — that was the setting for the 1973 popular film "The Wicker Man" — has a breathtaking, rugged landscape.
Tanera Mór is the last inhabited island of the 17-island Summer Isles archipelago. The owners are taking offers from £1.95 million. That works out to $2,379,567 for the 760-acre landmass, which is about 1.2 miles wide and about 1.6 miles long.
On the market since 2013, the island is also available as three subdivided lots, each with its own jetty and houses. Lot 1 is 231 acres and selling for just over £700,000 (about $850,000). Lot 2 is 196 acres and is priced at £430,000 (about $523,000). Lot 3 is 333 acres and priced at £820,000 (about $997,000). It comes with two additional small islands and a tidal island.
Owners Lizzie and Richard Williams married on the island and lived there until recently. Lizzie's parents purchased the island in 1996 and passed the property to their three children in 2010. In 2014, when Lizzie and Richard Williams, the last year-round residents, moved out, the Summer Isles officially became uninhabited. Here's a look at the island and what it has to offer.
