Stunning Scottish Island
Easier Property.com recently featured the Isle of Taransay a breathtaking 3,445 acre island which is currently on the market for 2 Million pounds. Located in an exceptional setting in the Outer Hebrides, Taransay is made up of two islands connected together by a peninsula of sand, with spectacular white sandy beaches, rugged cliff faces and heather moorlands forming its remarkable and unspoilt landscape. The island is steeped in history having been inhabited since about 300 A.D. when it was home to Celtic pagans. Throughout history it has been the site of fierce battles including the Massacre of Taransay in 1544, when the Morrisons of Lewis invaded. It was recently home to a different kind of battle as it was home to the television show Castaway. Here is what Easier Property had to say. ” The original buildings on the island were renovated and since 2002 have been used as self-catering holiday cottages.
