Pub on tiny remote island with just 61 inhabitants listed for £180,000

No hustle, no bustle, just a quiet pint in a friendly pub on a remote Scottish island shared with 61 other inhabitants.

The dreamy life of picturesque solitude could be snapped up for just £180,000 after the owner of the award-winning Puffer Bar & Restaurant on the tiny island of Easdale announced plans to sell her business.  

The tiny island boasts breathtaking views and will offer one person the chance to live off-grid on the Slate Islands in the Inner Hebrides, where there is no crime and locally caught langoustine, crab, hand-dived scallops and lobsters are the regular catch of the day.

It has been owned by Keren Cafferty since 2008 but the 48-year-old has announced she is leaving the post and selling up to begin her next business on the island.

Ms Cafferty has owned the pub for the last 10 years since leaving Edinburgh and her job is now being advertised on the island.

She said: ‘Well I’ve owned it since 2008 but I now have other plans for the Island. I am not leaving the Island but I enjoy the challenge of getting businesses up and running which is what I’ll do next.

‘The locals have had mixed emotions since my announcement, it’s the end of an era but it will be nice to get some fresh eyes here.

‘My staff are the first priority so someone who could take them on would be great. My chef is excellent here.

‘Also the business is doing very well at the moment, the numbers are up and this pub has put our Island on the map.’

Ms Cafferty hopes her close community will appreciate the next owner.

She added: ‘My husband and I moved to the Island in 2006 and before I took the pub over, it was shut down and the community were going to buy it.

‘But then I was offered it because I had catering experience in Edinburgh, so my husband and I ended up buying it in February 2008. We got some work done to it and it reopened in June 2008.

‘My community are very close so I think it needs somebody who wants to live here and who wants a challenge. It would be nice to come here and have lunch when I am not the owner.’
