The price of the island is £250,000 ($310,000). In Pakistani currency the price is Rs. 49,932,172.
Furthermore, the island is closer to Norway than Scotland. It is defined as “a place of spectacular scenery and beauty with an abundance of wildlife”.
Besides, the picturesque and protected place is adjacent to the Shetland region and has a year-round entrance.

Moreover, the island also has planning approval for the construction of a pier; and a warehouse shed with reception area; and new farming buildings.

Planning permission also comprises a windmill and solar panels for power; septic vessels with reed beds for sewerage and rainwater capturing from the cottage and shed roofs. This would provide the freshwater stock. Thus, you will have an ECO friendly and energy-efficient place.
