Croft House & Assignation, 15 Vatersay, Isle Of Barra, HS9 5YW

A croft assignation extending to 6.48 Ha (16 acres) or thereby (to be confirmed) on which there is a 2 bedroom croft house on the Isle of Vatersay.


Entrance Hallway, Sitting Room, Inner Hallway, Kitchen, Two Bedrooms & Shower Room.

15 Vatersay offers the rare opportunity to purchase a croft assignation on the Island of Vatersay.

The croft assignation is in two parts and extends to 6.48 Ha or thereby in total. The croft is made up of 1.62 Ha at 15 Vatersay and 4.86 Ha at 8 Eorisdale.

As this is a croft assignation, anyone wishing to take over the croft tenancy would require the approval of the Crofting Commission.

Located on the croft assignation is a two bedroom dwelling house – the last house on Vatersay. The property would benefit from a degree of modernisation.


The Island of Vatersay is the southernmost habited island in the Western Isles archipelago and is accessed via a causeway from the Island of Barra.

Just as short walk from the property is the stunning sandy beach with the Vatersay Community centre/café (open during the summer months).  There is also a sub post office.

The nearest services are located in Castlebay on the Isle of Barra, approximately 6 miles away.  Facilities in Castlebay include a primary and secondary school, community centre (with swimming pool), supermarket, post office, hospital, doctors and dental surgeries as well as a number of hotels and cafes, which in the summer months are normally busy with tourists.  Castlebay is also the main ferry terminal for the island with the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry making twice daily visits in the summer time from Oban, in the winter time the ferry runs a more restricted service.  A further smaller ferry operates from Ardmhor on Barra to Eriskay and regular scheduled flights operate from Glasgow and Benbecula with the famous cockle sands being used as a runway when tides permit.
