IF you are looking for a taste of island isolation, a new property has come up for grabs on the unspoiled Inner Hebridean isle of Lismore.

Unlike its popular neighbour, Mull, Lismore is off the beaten track, with only 170 inhabitants across 10 miles, so the island is ideal for buyers in search of the quiet life.

With far-reaching views across the island throughout the detached two-bedroom property and surrounded by mature gardens offering ample outdoor space, Tirlaggan West may be the perfect retirement or second home.

Speaking on behalf of Bell Ingram Oban, Laura MacCallum said: “As staycations continue to be the holiday of choice in the UK, we are seeing increasing interest from buyers from the South of England looking for second homes on Scotland’s West Coast and islands.

“With Lismore one of Scotland’s hidden gems which remains relatively untouched by Scotland’s booming tourism industry, and only five minutes-drive from the main ferry terminal with regular crossings to Oban, Tirlaggan West offers the perfect opportunity for those looking for a second home on Scotland’s islands and we anticipate huge interest from this market.”

The property is accessed from the front, with a sheltered entrance leading into a central hallway, before opening up to a stylish kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fitted with a bespoke combination of white floor and wall units, perfectly complimented by a contrasting worktop with double bowl sink and drainer.

The open plan design flows through to a family lounge which has a bright and airy feel thanks to triple aspect windows. Much thought has been given to the property design, with open oak beams giving a real sense of character, while French doors further enhance the layout, offering open views to the side gardens.

The property is accessed from the single-track island road with a gated entrance leading into a private driveway. The surrounding garden includes lawn, mature shrubbery and rockery. There is also an area of fertile raised vegetable beds and polytunnel, fruit bushes.

To the rear, an area of decking benefits from a quirky roof design that incorporates skylight windows, creating a sheltered place to sits and enjoy the wonderful landscape views.
