Livestock and machinery are transported between Inchmarnock and Bute by a ferry, The Marnock, which is docked on the island.
A stunning Scottish island has emerged for sale for just £1.4million - the cost of a London terraced home.
Inchmarnock, at the northern end of the Sound of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, is 2.5 miles long, half a mile wide and has 4.75miles of coastline.
The 660 acre island has a fascinating history, having been a target of Viking raids and used as a D-Day training ground - with bomb craters still visible in its landscape.
A farmer even discovered the remains of a local Bronze Age woman, the Queen of the Inch, on the island in the 1960s. She lay in a stone cist wearing a black lignite necklace and carrying a flint dagger. « less
