The Bell Ingram brochure states the castle “dominates the steep south-facing hillside which overlooks Loch Sunart.”

Arguably the most impressive feature of the Disney-like castle is its two islands – f Risga and Eilean an Feidh.

Included in the price, the islands are uninhabited and can only be reached by boat.

The castle’s new owner will also be able admire them any time from the comfort of their new surroundings.
