Scottish island group sold to Swiss businessman

A tiny island group off the west coast of Scotland has reportedly been sold to a Swiss businessman.

The deal, which was worth about £2.5 million (SFr4 million), includes the island of Sanda, which has its own pub but only one resident, as well as neighbouring Sheep Island and Glunimore Island.

The sale was confirmed by the previous owner of the islands, according to local media and the British Broadcasting Corporation.

The buyer is named as Michi Meier, a Swiss national who now lives in Sweden.

He apparently intends to run Sanda for his family’s private use.

The island was marketed as a piece of paradise for the past 20 years and has some 350 sheep along withchickens.
