If you're looking for complete peace and quiet against a stunning countryside backdrop, then the Isle of Skye may have just what you're looking for.

And you don't need to worry about anyone disturbing you, as the entire village could be yours.

Mary's Cottages in Elgol are made up of four thatched stone holiday cottages that are being sold with a modern five-bedroom house. The larger house is light, spacious and has a pitched roof.

Advertised as a 'lifestyle business', this is a great opportunity for anyone looking to run a small holiday company. The Strutt & Parker website states: 'This business opportunity is ideal for an entrepreneurial family or couple looking to "live the Highland dream" in an absolutely stunning location, with lots of scope for personalising the business.'

The four cottages are traditional Hebridean blackhouses with two of the homes being restored from ruins and the others newly built in the original style. Each cottage has classical interiors, vaulted ceilings, underfloor heating and slate floors. The four homes also have king-size and single beds.

The charms of the surrounding countryside are a certain draw for the little village. Dolphins, otters, eagles and basking sharks are regular visitors to the nearby bay.

Boat trips run from the jetty and travel to Loch Coruisk within the Cuillin Mountains, which offers breathtaking scenery. Whether enjoying the views by boat, car or on foot, you won't be let down.

If gorgeous views, a life of peace and quiet, and an exciting business opportunity is for you, Mary's Cottages may be calling.

The village is available for offers over £1.25 million through Strutt & Parker.
