Taransay – island for sale

The news has been released today that Taransay is on the market. It’s hard to magine anyone would want to sell this special place, but if you have £2,000,000 to spare at the moment, it could be yours.

The uninhabited island lies off the West coast of Harris in the Outer Hebrides. Over the last 9 years it has been the home of the annual Taransay Fiddle Camp.

These are just a few of my photos taken on the island over those 9 years. I hope the island’s new owners, whoever they may be, will have us back!
