Mullagrach Island is the most northerly of the Summer Isles, a group of around 30 islands south of the Coigach peninsula. The island, which lies approximately two miles from Old Dorney Harbour (a boat journey of about thirty-five minutes), was purchased by the owners in 2006, extends to approximately 88.7 acres and comprises rough grass and heather dotted with wildflowers and a coastline of rocky beaches, sheltered coves, caves and cliffs. It has been the owners’ objective to conserve and improve the wildlife and vegetation of the island and to minimize disturbance to sensitive species of flora and its birdlife including, amongst others, great skua, kittiwakes, shag, fulmars and geese.
The island, which can easily be reached by boat from the mainland, has a landing stage and ground tackle for running mooring. In order to enjoy the island and facilitate their management of wildlife conservation, the owners were granted planning consent in 2014 for a high-quality, low environmental impact cabin. Manufactured in Switzerland and of cross laminated timber construction, the cabin has been positioned and designed to withstand the weather conditions, while its curved, heather clad roof allows it to blend into the landscape. The interior is well equipped with a kitchen area, wood burning stove and two box beds, while solar panels provide power and there is an outside composting WC. There is a rainwater collection system, but drinking water is bottled.

The island and cabin are sold as seen.
The option exists to purchase the sellers’ boat by separate negotiation. The boat was designed and built by Tim Loftus, of Johnson and Loftus boatbuilders in Ullapool. He built it from Vendia marine plank, a lightweight and stable alternative to solid timber, from renewable sources and from local larch. It has a lithium battery powered electric outboard enabling a 35 minute transit to the island.

Viewing of the island is limited due to weather conditions and means of access.
Either the sellers or a local fishing boat owner involved in the maintenance of the
island structures, will accompany viewings. These will only be accommodated
for those who have formally noted interest. Anyone visiting the island will
need to wear outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear and will have to be of a
level of fitness to travel by boat and climb the ladders to reach the island.
