If you’ve ever wanted to own your own village, this could be the perfect opportunity for you. You can buy a village on the Isle of Skye, situated along the western coast of Scotland, for just over $1.5 million. Not a bad price for an entire village on an island! And you actually get quite a bit for your money.

For starters, the village occupies 2.6 acres of land and the price includes four cottages, each furnished with a king-size bed and a twin-bed loft. The buyer will also get the owner’s home, a modernized five-bedroom dwelling.

Not bad, hey?

The property is being marketed through Strutt & Parker as a “lifestyle business” opportunity. In other words, this would be great for someone looking to operate a bed and breakfast in a beautiful location.

According to the posting, this area is known as the village of Egol and is known for its fishing. It’s a quiet, secluded area, but it’s just a 20-minute boat ride from the busier Loch Coruisk.

There’s no denying this is the perfect place for a peaceful getaway. It’s private and has gorgeous views of the water and mountains.

So, that $1.5 million price tag is sounding like a downright bargain now, is it?

Note that the seller is inclined to take the highest offer, so definitely keep that in mind when placing your bids.

Even if you and a few of your friends decided to go in on this place, it’d be totally worth it. And if you’re thinking of renting this space out to other guests, think of it as an investment.

If you’re not in the market for a million-dollar property (we get it!), you can still be on the lookout for these cottages to become available to rent. Maybe whoever does purchase this island village will be inclined to use it as it’s intended, as a “lifestyle business.”

That way, we’d all win!
