Isle of Lewis hill farm with private island

Crobeag is a hillfarm in the very north west of Scotland, on the island of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. The farmhouse itself was almost completely rebuilt 20 years ago, and is located in a beautiful, and sheltered location. The house has three bedrooms, and an open plan kitchen/sitting room.

Outside, the farmland in total comes to 365 acres, partly on Lewis itself, and also on St Columba’s Island which is a historic private island off the coast of Lewis separated by a short tidal causeway which can be accessed at low tide. In addition the property also includes a number of other nearby small outcrops totalling about ten acres.

St Columba’s Island itself is a fascinating place: as one of the very first Christian sites on Lewis the former church and related developments were dedicated to St Columba, and the graveyard was used up until the 19th century, if not beyond. The first description of the island is by Sir Donald Munro, High Dean of the Isles, who travelled the area in 1549, before the reformation.
