Mega Millions win could buy a slice of Scotland

Why is it when you don’t have millions in your bank account you always see expensive things that you’d like to buy?

Lately we have been coveting the idea of owning our own private Scottish island, especially when we heard that Tanera Mor was up for sale. It’s “a mere drop in the ocean” at £2.5 million.

Who could resist such an opportunity? Especially when John Bound of CKD Galbraith estate agents, who are handling the sale, described it as a “flourishing tourist enterprise and superb family residence. The chance to own your own Scottish island is extremely rare and with Tanera Mor’s prosperous tourist enterprise coupled with being a truly spectacular place to live, we expect to receive a lot of interest as it goes on the open market.”

So what do you get if you shell-out £2.5 million of your Mega Millions winnings? Well your own 800 acre island just 1.5 miles from the north-west coast of Scotland, which is part of the Summer Isles archipelago. It’s the only inhabited island, and has nine residential properties, a post office and a cafe, as well as three jetties. That means there’s room to moor three new super yachts if you choose, send as many postcards as you like and serve Champagne and caviar in your cafe!

Currently Lizzie and Richard Williams ‘look after’ Tanera Mor since her family, the Wilders, purchased the island back in 1996, and now they want you to enjoy ownership too! She said of the island: “After many happy years of calling Tanera home, it is time for someone else to have the privilege of looking after this amazing place.”

So if you are fortunate enough to win the next Mega Millions lottery jackpot, which currently is $170 million, you could grab your own slice of bonny Scotland.
