House and croft, Point, Isle of Lewis

So what do you reckon you'd pay on the south coast for a detached three-bed with a couple of acres of land running down to the sea? £Half-a-million? Maybe a couple of hundred thou less if it was bit of a dump?
For the hardier souls among you, who are happy wearing three layers of clothing while you sip your G&T and gaze out to sea, the Western Isles of Scotland still offer some real bargains. Like this one - a three-bed crofthouse on the Isle of Lewis, with 2.14 acres and open views out to sea at a recently reduced fixed price of £95k.
The property doesn't need much work - mostly updating, but it would be worth investing in better windows and insulation and eco-friendly options to keep you warm.
It's at Point, around seven miles from Stornoway, the capital of Lewis, and is on the market through Western Isles Property, more details and pictures here.
