If you have plans for world domination, would like the privacy to train your private army and somewhere to park your helicopter, then Eilean Rìgh is the place for you.
Located in Loch Craignish, Eilean Rìgh island is around 260 acres in size, has two houses, an observatory, boat house, 2 slips ways and a jetty. To keep you connected to your global empire, the island also has mains electricity and broadband internet access. It’s also quite stunning:
The island isn’t just about nice views and modern technology, it’s also steeped in history. Two iron age forts have been found on the island and it’s had a couple of interesting owners over the years. The first notable one is Sir Reginald Johnston, tutor to Puyi, the last Emperor of China. Under his ownership the island was modernised (to 1930s standards) and had Chinese gardens installed. The current owner is Christian Siva-Jothy, a former Goldman Sachs partner who retired in 2005. Due to Goldman’s notoriety over the past decade, it’s likely that the island has played host to more than a few movers and shakers in the financial and political world.
Whoever buys Eilean Rìgh is going to own one of the most accessible private islands in the world. If this sounds like the kind of place you would like to own then all you need to do is save up £3,000,000…..or be the partner in a bank.
