Island Fever

The 547-acre Eilean Aigas, which was featured in the Smart Showings section of Robb Report Home & Style’s March/April issue, is a rare find. Located just 11 miles from the city of Inverness, the Scottish Highlands private island offers plenty of natural beauty—manicured parks, idyllic farmland, untouched forest—and a 28,837-square-foot country house that fits the landscape to a tee. However, the Scottish stunner—priced at $23.6 million (available through Ran Morgan, +44.131.22.9600, www.knightfrank.co.uk)—is not the only option for those looking to acquire such a one-of-a-kind property.

Three other private island beauties now on the market:

Île de Boëdic, $12.6 million
Situated within the Gulf of Morbihan, a natural harbor in the south of Brittany, France, this 17.3-acre island offers privacy without seclusion, as the mainland is less than a mile away. The property includes a late-19th-century main house, which was renovated in 2010; a farmhouse that dates to the early 19th century; a guesthouse; a chapel; and a 125-foot-long pier. Available through Vladi Private Islands, 902.423.3202, www.vladi-private-islands.de

Saddle Back Cay, $11.9 million
Named for its unique shape, Saddle Back Cay has seven beaches and an elevation of more than 90 feet, the latter of which gives the island some of the best views in the Bahamian archipelago of Exuma. A main house sits at the center of the 35-acre property, and five guesthouses are located on a rocky stretch of coastline, keeping the sandy shores structure-free and the focus on the area’s natural beauty. Available through Vladi Private Islands, 902.423.3202, www.vladi-private-islands.de

Morans Island, $63,576
This four-acre parcel in New Brunswick, Canada, is one of several islands in the area that range in size from three to 900 acres; all of them are accessible (within about a 10-minutes boat trip from any of three nearby wharfs). Bordering Maine, the area is known for its tides, which are the highest in the world, as well as its whales, which can be watched from the island’s sandy beaches and sheltered coves. Available through Vladi Private Islands, 902.423.3202, www.vladi-private-islands.de
