Cottages, Isle of Skye, Scotland

Prompted by a lovely email from Margaret (looking for her dream derelict bothy), I thought I'd have a look at some of the more, shall we say, structurally-challenged properties for sale on Skye.
I've featured properties by the Isle of Skye estate agency in the past but usually in a better condition than Simpson Croft House, pictured above.
The house, in Arinackaig close to the village of Strathcarron, is in a fabulous rural location with stunning views over the surrounding hills (pic below). Realistically however the house needs demolition and this is more of a plot sale than a property sale. It's on the market at offers over £60k. More details here.

The agent also has this property at Hungladder, previously featured on 'Wreck', and the cottage below, at Portnalong, with views to the Cuillin mountains, at offers £70k. More details here.

The detached cottage below, in Heaste, is also in a lovely location, close to the coast and about five miles from the town of Broadford, with views of the Sleat Peninsula and the hills of Knoydart.

Don't be fooled by the picture however; behind that hedge is another island property that's been left to rot and the interior pix give an idea of the renovation challenge. It's on the market through Skye Property Centre at offers around £60k. More details and pix here.

The same agent has a couple of similar properties currently under offer, like the one above in a stunning location at Staffin. On the market at offers over £70k. The interior pictures (below) make you think the estate agents on Skye must be made of tougher stuff!
