A Virgin Island

At the top of the Trotternish Peninsula, Skye, is Tulm Island (above) and in the middle distance is Fladda-chuain, also pictured below. The name derives from the Old Norse for 'flat island' and Gaelic for 'ocean'. It's the latter that is now up for sale and led to an interesting introduction appearing in a Sunday Times article published yesterday. The owner of the island has apparently never set foot there, making it, in a way, a virgin island.
