Additional Information

Agents Perspective:
" Rathlin is an island off the coast of County Antrim, and is the northernmost point of Northern Ireland. Rathlin is the only inhabited offshore island in Northern Ireland, with a population of around 100 people. The reverse L-shaped island is 4 miles (6 km) from east to west, and 2.5 miles (4 km) from north to south. The highest point on the island is Slieveard, 134 metres above sea level. Rathlin is 15.5 miles (25 km) from the Mull of Kintyre and 6 miles (10km) from Ballycastle. A ferry operates from Ballycastle to the main port on the island at Church Bay and takes between 25 - 40 minutes (depending on the service and the weather).
The island is home to tens of thousands of seabirds and is designated as a Special Area of Conservation in Northern Ireland and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As a consequence construction on the island is deliberately restrcited.
Shandragh is a former herdsman's cottage and is believed to have been built in the mid 1700's. Today planning permission exists to refurbish and extend the cottage to provide a tranquil haven from which to enjoy the peace and solitude of this wild and interesting island".
