Ever wanted to own your own private island? Now you can, as a listing just came up for a private island off the coast of Shetland in Great Britain. The island is called Linga Island, and is over 63 acres of pure oceanfront property.

What’s even better? The price! You can submit offers of over GBP 250,000, which comes out to roughly $350K USD, which is less than most what most NYC studio apartments cost to own.

More about Linga Island:

A unique opportunity to buy an unspoilt 63.75 acre island located in the scenic and sheltered Vaila Sound on the west side of Shetland. This private island is located close to the Mainland with year round access possible. Shetland is the most northerly island group of the British Isles, closer to Norway than Scotland.

It is a place of spectacular scenery and beauty with an abundance of wildlife. This is an exciting development opportunity with the island having planning consent for the building of a pier and storage shed with reception area, new agricultural buildings, a two acre loch with traditional watermill as well as the rebuilding of the two derelict cottages and the erection of a new cottage. 

The planning consent also includes a windmill and solar panels for power, septic tanks with reed beds for sewage and rainwater capture from the cottage and shed roofs to provide the fresh water supply making it ECO friendly and energy efficient.

Forget the Hamptons this summer, if you’re looking for the ultimate vacation, you may want to consider purchasing your own island, either by yourself or with a group of friends!
