Ailsa Craig for Sale
Dome shaped and distinctive, the island of Ailsa Craig is thought to have been formed from the "plug" left behind from an extinct volcano and is a well known Ayrshire landmark.

220 acres in size, it boasts a ruined castle, a small two bedroomed cottage, a lighthouse built by Robert Stevenson and a quarry famous for the blue hone granite used to make curling stones.

It's situated ten miles off the Ayrshire coast, approximately half way between Glasgow and Belfast, and was a haven for Catholics during the Scottish Reformation in the 16th century hence it's other name - "Paddy's milestone".

In the 18th - 19th century, it was also used as a prison but now is uninhabited other than by gannets and puffins.

Ailsa Craig is being sold by the Scottish peer Archibald Angus Charles Kennedy, the 8th Marquess of Ailsa, who has reduced the original asking price of £2.5 million, by a million pounds.
