The ship, Challenge, was carrying a cargo of timber from Canada in November 1880,when it foundered in a storm and broke up on the rocks of Leim Point.
The Isle of Gigha itself was purchased for £4m in 2002 in a community buy out – and the area has been flourishing since.
The stunning island property in Leim, to the south of the isle, is not only based beside an airstrip – but comes with its own off-road jeep.
However, the jeep doesn’t have an MOT – and is for island use only.
The breathtaking expansive home would be perfect for an island retreat or for a potential B&B.
Nestled amongst the dramatic coastline, a stones throw from the beach and with a private courtyard that includes a small pond- the property is not one to miss.
The property boasts a total of six bedrooms, five bathrooms and five reception rooms – all freshly renovated during an extension in 2008.
