A PICTURESQUE island located in Loch Lomond linked to Robert the Bruce has been launched.
Inchlonaig is one of the lake’s larger islands and is currently for sale for £995,000.
This is a wonderful and rare opportunity to buy a piece of Scotland’s history.
Potential buyers can enjoy beautiful overwater views of Ben Lomond and the Arrochar Alps.
The island boasts an area of just under 182 acres and is home to a vibrant forest.
There is also a rather old two-bedroom cottage on the island, as well as three derelict houses.
There is also a good sized jetty for launching and landing boats.
The ancient forest consisting of about 800 yew trees can be traced back to the time of Robert the Bruce, who is said to have planted the trees there in the 14th century.
Yew was used to make bows and it is thought that royal archers used wooden bows from Inchlonaig during the Battle of Bannockburn.
The island was mentioned in a 1541 charter and was used as pasture for cattle in the 1600s.
A century later, a deer park was created by Sir John Colquhoun of Luss and one can still see the abandoned white deer on the island.
Estate agent Cameron Ewer said: “Loch Lomond, it’s the islands and the views from them that are not only iconic in Scotland but internationally recognized.
“Having the opportunity to own one, it’s really special.”
