A 2,450-acre estate in the north-west of Skye has been sold in a private off-market deal.
The Talisker Estate, which includes the iconic Talisker bay and the mountains of Preshal Mor and Preshal Beag, has been sold to a private buyer from the UK.
Despite sharing the same name as the famed whisky from the Misty Isle, the sale of the estate does not include the Talisker Distillery.
The land, which contains a predominantly rugged and hilly landscape, also includes two hill lochs and two miles of beautiful coastline and was listed with a guide price of £1.2million by estate agents Strutt and Parker.
Euan MacCrimmon, senior associate director in the firm’s Inverness office, said: “Talisker is a stunning and truly iconic location on the Isle of Skye, nestled in the shadow of the Black Cuillins and with views to the inner Hebridean islands of Rum and Canna and the Outer Hebridean islands of South Uist and Barra.
“The new owner has plans to restore the estate to its former glory working in partnership with the current farming enterprise which runs the hefted sheep flock on the estate.”
The sale of the estate, which for centuries was owned by the Clan Macleod, was completed earlier this month.
