Set across two floors the property features wood panelled ceilings throughout, with an open fireplace in the sitting room and a decorative stained-glass window, which lights the staircase.

Home to the world famous Iona Abbey, one of the oldest Christian religious centres, the Isle of Iona is full of history with many visitors following in the footsteps of St Columba. Nearby is St Oran’s Chapel and Reilig Odhrain which is reputed to be the burial place of Macbeth and 47 other kings of Scotland.

Brian MacKechnie, of Bell Ingram, said: ‘Lagnagiogan is the perfect island home filled with charm and presents a great opportunity for a couple or small family looking to enjoy an idyllic rural lifestyle.

‘The property’s interior would benefit from some modernisation but the beauty of the location is undeniable and the opportunity to purchase property on Iona is a rarity.

‘The island is inhabited by around 130 people and has a traditional community feeling to it. On top of that the number of vehicles on Iona is restricted by permit and with no crime to speak of, it makes a wonderfully safe environment for children and adults alike.’

The Isle of Iona, accessed via a regular ferry service from the Isle of Mull, is fully equipped with a well-stocked general store as well as a number of other amenities and businesses catering to the needs of locals and tourists alike.
