The mansion Ulva House was built in 1950.

One of the finest private islands in northern Europe for sale for the first time in 70 years.

Ulva is offering a unique combination of peace and privacy while being easily accessible by boat from the nearby Isle of Mull.

The island extends to approximately 4,583 acres and is approximately 7.5 miles long and 2.5 miles wide. From sea level, the island rises to 313m at the summit of Beinn Chreagach.

The principal residence, Ulva House, is a fine grade B-listed property built in the neo-classical revival style. It was constructed in 1950 to replace an earlier dwelling destroyed by fire.

The island also includes a Telford designed church, a small restaurant and tea room let on commercial tenancy, a restored blackhouse and nine other residential properties ranging from traditional bothies to a sporting lodge.

Ulva has heritage and conservation value with incredible wildlife, birdlife and sea life. There is also deer stalking and other sporting potential.

Ulva is found off the western coast of Mull, the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides.
The island is home to 123 different bird species, including the white-tailed sea eagle. Minke whales, porpoises and dolphins are among the sealife that can be found around Ulva.

Ulva is situated just off the mainland and is accessed across the Sound of Ulva (a few hundred metres) from the settlement of Ulva Ferry on Mull to the pier on the Ulva.
