If rugged landscapes, tranquil fishing villages, and medieval castles are your kind of thing, a trip to Scotland should definitely be on your radar. But why just visit when you can live there year round? After all, an entire village just went up for sale, and it could be just what you need to get a little peace and quiet.
Situated in Elgol on the Isle of Skye, the village is listed at £1.25 million and includes one five-bedroom home and four adorable cottages. The way we see it, that's either a perfect accommodation option for your visiting friends, or a fantastic opportunity to make some money on Airbnb. Plus, the village is just 45 minutes away from the capital city of Portree, which means travelers may be looking for an idyllic countryside retreat. Yes, we see the investment working out already.
In terms of your own lifestyle, the nearby town is home to harborside pubs, boutique shopping, hiking, and more. Your social life will be simple, but you can spend your days climbing Bad Step Mountain, and your evenings admiring the view from your window. If that doesn't sound like a million dollar lifestyle, then we don't know what does.
If you live in Scotland, a trip to Ireland is that much easier.
