Carrick and Croft, located on the Isle of Eriskay, is a breathtaking, architect-designed home which offers unbelievable views across the sea out to South Uist.
This contemporary Scottish home, with boatshed and byre, is being presented to the market at offers over £350,000 by Bell Ingram, who expect huge interest from buyers in search of lifestyle and investment opportunities.
The property, which is in a rarely available coastal location, is being sold together with Croft 11 Bun A Mhullin which runs from the shore up to the ramparts of Beinn Sgiathan, the highest summit of Eriskay, with extraordinary panoramic views of the Hebrides, with mountains, shore and seas abundant with wildlife.
Joanne Stennett, from Bell Ingram’s Highland office, said: "Carrick is an exquisite modern property which is clad in sustainably sourced Scottish larch, finished to the highest standard and designed to harmonise with the vernacular architecture of the islands.
“It is situated on Eriskay, a naturally beautiful hilly island in the Outer Hebrides which is around three miles long and 1.5 miles wide. It has untouched sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and breath-taking views. There is a ferry to the Isle of Barra from the pretty harbour. Eriskay has a shop and pub/restaurant and the house is within walking distance of both.”
Carrick is decorated in neutral colours and has quality oak finishings throughout with quarry tiled floors to the public areas and bathroom, and carpeted bedrooms.
The property has an eco-air conditioning/heat-recovery system, top specification triple-glazing and exceptional insulation ensures a comfortable living environment. The Solar PV and Solar Thermal panels provide most of the energy year-round. There are also opportunities to invest further in renewable energy (subject to the usual consents).

Dual aspect windows together with double Velux ceiling windows offer plenty of natural light and give lovely views of the surrounding croft land.
