Deer Island, 11 uninhabited acres, is up for auction, starting at £80,000. Expected sale price is expected to be around £200,000 - less than $280,000. With the savings, you could afford to put in a helipad for the castle you might be building. Or you could just leave it as a red squirrel sanctuary. Maybe the next Bond villain’s lair?
If anyone here had the money, would you bid on this bit of Highlands solitude? What would you do with it?
