A wildlife lover’s dream home has gone on the market for just over £400,000.
The stunning property on Mull promises prospective buyers views of at least 20 rarely-seen species – including golden eagles and basking sharks – without leaving the armchair.
Selling agent Savills say the current residents have also spotted dolphins and porpoises, pine martens, and otters among many other creatures.
Corry Meadows in Craignure is just opposite Fishnish Bay, with views out onto the surrounding sea and hills.
And for anyone wanting to get more scientific about their enjoyment of nature, the property also includes a biology laboratory complete with microscopes and an observatory.
Savills describe the house – on the market for offers over £425,000 – as a “unique lifestyle change opportunity”.
As well as the main two-bedroom property, there are two adjoining cottages to rent out.
Their brochure states: “The three cottages afford a comfortable owner’s residence and two holiday cottages generating a regular income.
“From the windows of this property our clients frequently see white-tailed and golden eagles, hen harriers, great northern and red throated divers, gannets, terns and nesting birds including oyster catchers, sandpipers and wagtails.
“Red deer, otters and pine martens are regular visitors as are common and grey seals.”
It adds: “In the summer basking sharks, dolphins and porpoise can also be seen around the coastline. Mull has the largest breeding population of white-tailed (sea) eagles in the UK and the elusive corncrake is a regular target species for ‘twitchers’ from all over the country.
“Guests staying at Corry Meadows share use of the fantastic purpose built, elevated observatory which has uninterrupted views of the bay.”
The island, part of the Inner Hebrides, is renowned for its varied and extensive wildlife, marine life, geology, landscapes and sea views, together with its numerous bridle ways and footpaths including its very own Munro, Ben More.
