A small Scottish island has been put up for sale for a guide price of £2.5 million. Tanera Mor is the largest and only inhabited island in the Summer Isles archipelago 1.5 miles off the north west coast of Scotland.
The 800 acre island is currently managed by Lizzie and Richard Williams, who took it on from Mrs Williams' family, the Wilders.
The Wilders bought the island in 1996 after selling their dairy farm in Wiltshire.

Mrs William said it is time to give someone else the "privilege of looking after the amazing place". She said:
John Bound of CKD Galgraith Estate agents, who are now handling the sale, said:
The island inspired the book Island Farm by Frank Fraser Darling who lived in Tanera Mor in the late 1930s and studied the habitat of its bird colonies.
