Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Tanera Mòr is the main island of the Summer Isles archipelago, a group of rugged and exquisitely beautiful islands lying just 1.5 miles off the northwest coast of Scotland. Tanera Mòr has a coastline of approximately seven miles encompassing numerous cliffs, coves and beaches; innumerable perfect picnic spots interspersed with fresh water lochans; and wonderful waters in which to swim, sail and fish.

Tanera Mòr is reached via a short boat journey from Badentarbat Pier or Old Dornie Harbour. The pier is about 1.5 miles from the charming and popular west coast village of Achiltibuie. Alternatively, a larger vessel could be moored at Ullapool.

The island itself is self sufficient with regards to private water and power supplies and is an idyllic spot to enjoy all that island life has to offer. The Old Schoolhouse is the largest dwelling on the island and occupies a prominent location high above the bay looking over the water to Achiltibuie and the magnificent backdrop of the Assynt Mountains, of which Stac Pollaidh is the most famed.

Most of the island houses are traditional stone built houses which have been sympathetically restored for permanent use or holiday cottages. Broadly speaking, they are divided into three clusters at the northern, southern and western sides of the bay, each of which has its own jetty.

To allow flexibility the island is being offered for sale as a Whole or in individual lots.
