Is­land of Ulva for sale at £4.25m

The Oban Times - - News -

ONE of the finest pri­vate is­lands in north­ern Europe is up for sale for the first time in 70 years.

For the ask­ing price of £4.25 mil­lion, Ulva of­fers a unique com­bi­na­tion of peace and pri­vacy while be­ing eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by boat from the nearby Isle of Mull.

The sec­ond largest is­land of the In­ner He­brides, Ulva extends to ap­prox­i­mately 4,583 acres and is ap­prox­i­mately 7.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide and its high­est point is 313m above sea level at the sum­mit of Beinn Chrea­gach.

The main res­i­dence, Ulva House, is a grade B-listed prop­erty built in the neo- clas­si­cal re­vival style. It was built in 1950 to re­place a pre­vi­ous prop­erty de­stroyed by fire.

The is­land also in­cludes a Telford de­signed church, a small restau­rant and tea room, a re­stored black­house and nine other res­i­dences, rang­ing from tra­di­tional both­ies to a sport­ing lodge.

Ulva has in­cred­i­ble wildlife, birdlife and sea life, and is home to 123 dif­fer­ent bird species, in­clud­ing the white-tailed sea ea­gle. Minke whales, por­poises and dol­phins are among the seal­ife that can be found around Ulva.

Ulva is sit­u­ated just off the main­land and is ac­cessed across the Sound of Ulva (a few hun­dred me­tres) from the set­tle­ment of Ulva Ferry on Mull to the pier on the Ulva.

The sale in­cludes the man­sion.
