No man is an island . . . own your own little kingdom in Shetland

Out Skerries Estate, Shetland Islands

Islands For Sale In Shetland
Here's an opportunity to aquire a collection of islands standing in rugged isolation in the North Sea, nine miles to the east of the mainland Shetland Islands.

The estate comprises a small archipelago of islands including Housay (West Isle) and Bruray (East Isle), the islands of Benelip and Filia and the outlying islands of Little Skerry, Muckle Skerry and Vongs.

Bruray and Housay are the two main islands with the inhabitants scattered around the sheltered inner shores and the crofting townships concentrated around the harbour. Unfortunately there's no house associated with the estate and only two, now derelict, buildings formally used as a coastguard lookout and signal post. However 15 registered crofts are included but as they produce a total rent roll of £167.18 per year, there's no fortune to be made that way.

There is a regular ferry service from Vidlin or Lerwick and scheduled flights from Tingwall to the islands airstrip, so you won't be completely isolated.

The estate can be bought as a whole or in five separate lots, so if you fancy living in a beautiful, unspoilt location, in peace and tranquility why not become the new Laird of Skerries.
