There's an island in Scotland on sale for $351,000
If you're looking for a permanent island getaway and have about $351,000 to spare, then Linga island in Scotland is waiting for you.
Nestled off the coast of the Shetland Isles lies a 63.75-acre private island called Linga. While the island may be uninhabited, there hasn't been a human resident since 1943, there are plenty of sheep and a few abandoned cottages which have been approved for renovation. In addition to cottage renovations, the island's prospective owner can also build a new cottage, a pier, wind and solar power generation and a few other agricultural infrastructures. Vladi Private Islands, the company that initially listed the secluded island, has plans to build septic tanks with reed beds for sewage and rainwater capture from the cottage and shed roofs to provide the fresh water supply making it ECO-friendly and energy efficient.
Although the island may not be up to 2018's standards of civilization, with a little elbow grease -- and a few extra dollars -- Linga can be the perfect summertime retreat. The island is only a boat ride away from the town of Walls and a short flight to Shetland's main airport.
