The Scottish island of Barlocco is up for sale. It is currently valued at at least $150,000. pounds (approx. PLN 780,000). It can be reached “by boat or at low tide by foot, tractor or quad bike”.
Barlocco Island is located off the southern coast of Scotland. It is approximately 0.1 square kilometers in size and can only be reached “by boat or at low tide on foot, tractor or ATV,” according to the website of real estate agency Galbraith Group, which launched the auction on Thursday. Currently, the island is valued at at least 150,000. pounds.

Barlocco is entirely covered with lush grasses and rocks. As the description of the auction shows, there are no buildings on it, only a pond from which the animals living there can draw water. Apart from it, there is no other source of running water on the island. On the west side there is a pebble beach where you can moor your boat. The nearest town is almost 10 km from the island. The Galbraith Group says the island is in a “stunning location with exceptional views”.
“There is still a very romantic sentiment about having your own Scottish private island where you can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy a bit of tranquility in the most beautiful scenery,” Sales Supervisor Aaron Edgar of the Galbraith Group said in a statement.
So far, no one has applied for permission to build any property on the island, but it may prove to be a difficult task for the future buyer. Barlocco is located in the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), which is a protected place, because there are rare species of animals and plants.
