Eilean Mhic Coinnich from Portnahaven

Lying just off the coast from the village of Portnahaven and north of the island of Orsay, Eilean Mhic Coinnich came onto the market in March 2008. At the time the vendor, Gilbert MacNab of Stirling, grazed cattle there. In 2010 it was available for offers "in the region of £90,000" and was sold for £55,000 in 2012 to Piers Casimir-Mrowczynski, a teacher from St Albans in England.
