            Thanks for this post from:

            There's an island up for sale - a tiny island off the north west coast of Scotland - for the princely sum of around £2.5 million.  The island is 800 acres and is called Tanera Mor and has been occupied since Viking times.

            You can read the full story on the BBC website and also view a picture of the tiny island.

            Not sure I'd want to be so isolated but it must be a wonderfully tranquil place to be.

            If you had hundreds or even tens of millions in the bank, would you buy it?

            Omg heck yes!! Every weekend id pack and be on the way to my island, that's just beautiful, I love the name too, I get one of those old time bathtubs, set it on the shore with an umbrella, over it, id hire a handsome waiter dress him in a very skimpy outfit, so every now and then I can watch his bootie as he walks away (just kidding)... i'd probably just drown in the surroundings and become drunk with tranquility

              Great to see you back on the forum.  You were missed.

              The way you word it makes it sound wonderful Imagin.  Bathing on the beach sounds like the ultimate relaxing bath....and with a handsome man in his skimpy outfit to boot.  Fantastic!

              I would definitely buy an island if I had that kind of cash but maybe not in Scotland, the weather might not be too friendly.

                Agreed.  It always rains a lot in the summer and snows a lot in the winter.

                Yes, I would  buy it. I don't mind the rain especially in the summer.  In case I'm able to buy an island I think I would also buy a tropical one first and then this one in Scotland.

                Now that is what i call the ultimate dream! I was surprised to learn they even have a post office so that must mean there is a village of people living there. And in this part of the world hurricanes aren't an issue but is the weather damp and cool most of the time as it is in England Blue?

                  Scotland is worse.  Rainy and damp spring/summer - cold/snowy in the winter.  England isn't quite so bad but we haven't had a decent summer for years now.  We generally get a nice week in April or May and that is that for the rest of the year.

                  After living in this desert dry heat, for 9 months of a year, i wouldn't mind getting away to some cold and damp, some snow i wouldn't mind either, i'd just build me a little camp fire, maybe a portable fireplace right next to my tub lol

                  In this time of heavy climate changes living on a small island doesnt sound like a wise idea to me

                  Im always for a nice mountain cottage by some lake, preferably surrounded by pine forest.

                    I can't stand the heat so English weather is perfect for me.  That said, I wouldn't mind suffering a bit of desert dry heat in Vegas Imagin.

                    I'm with drtheolen on this one, I'm afraid, considering the bad weather conditions in Scotland. I'd be afraid for my well-being all the time. However, a house somewhere near the beach and/or a den cottage somewhere in Tara would be nice.

                    Here are some pics of mount Tara in Serbia, it's a gorgeous mountain with unspoilt nature, one of the most beautiful places in the country:







                    Now, that's my idea of a perfect location for my vacation home!

                      The pictures are fantastic CatFace; I've been to Tara mountain a few times. Lovely place.

                      But still,  that island in Scotland would be great.
