The owner bought this awesome island and buildings for £8.4 Million in 2018. There has been a Planning Permission GRANTED. The current sale price is quoted at…
Owner/Agency Asking: £15 million.
It is, without doubt a gorgeous property. So much so, it has appeared in numerous films and television series.
We have owned and lived on similar island property; our team have been brought up on islands. We have helped sell several. We cannot see where the £15,000,000 guide comes from.
Our View Would Be: £9.5 million.

“Hotel Rooms Ownership At Burgh Island”
Via our contact page…
Our readers have a group of mischief makers who club together and, for example would buy a bedroom FULLSHARE (not Time-Share). That means owning the hotel room via the freehold, in perpetuity AND for 52 weeks a year. Not some random, overpriced week in October. Details of our previous and current hotel-room-ownership projects where we ensure viability (and even renovate and re-open closed hotels to create jobs and bring back local amenities), please get in touch: Click Here.
This is a truly unique way of bringing life back into the hotel sector. An industry that has been ravaged by the Covid pandemic Then when financial reseves are all used up, manuy hotels have struggled with rising fuel prices. To finis quite a lot of hotels off we have rising interest rates and somfor the poor blighters in Scotland some very ropey, badly written legislation that threatens to closkill off large chunks of the tourist ndustry.
Whilst ere in Devon, a £15,000,000 hotel and island has a very rarified pool of buyers ho play at the £15,000,000 level.
By dumb luck more than design, our Hotel-Room-Ownership has been tested with closed hotels and reaworks so well as the people woh sed their funds (directly to the conveynancing solicitors) actually end up legally owning and controlling the hotel.
Not some Costa Del Crime character who rips our friend off for £18,000 (that is how we created the Hotel-Room-Ownership legal structure. More details of that with photos, title deeds and full narrrative of how the legalities work (and work well) is being put together in a special feature artcile to be uploaded onto our Unique Property Bulletin in the next few weeks.
It is also worth mentioning we BAN mortgages on all of the hotels. It is 100^% pure ownership by the FULLSHARE bedroom owners>
By enabling the actual FULLSHARE bedroom owners to CONTROL the hotel with a view to keeping it open (at least 26 weeks hotel use and 1 week to 26 weeks like Keanu Reeves where he actually lives in a hotel). Though to live what is now known as a very economical “intrnet nomad” lifestyle, you would likely need to own a hotel bedroom in 3 hotels. This would afford you a very comfortable base with ensuite bedroom and room service ay some very exotic places to live. Plus enjoy going south for the winters so you have “Two-Summers-&-No-Winters”.
=> This started out in a real world example at our Lighthouse Tower House Hotel with FULLSHARE bedroom ownership and a share of the Hotel freehold at £30,00per bedroom. We will be featuring that adventure soon.

Part of the new movie “Tetris” was filmed at the former RAF Balado site. The principles underwriting the shapes of “Tetris” have inspired the Unique Property Bulletin approach of developing the Balado site into a few bespoke and enigmatically shaped theme, rather than 40 to 150 newbuild “identical box” type design of housing.
As an homage to 60 foot tall, iconic Radome “golf ball” for which Balado is famed, the candidate designs suggested, have a reflection from “Tetris” to varying degrees. Several on the “shapes” theme have featured in Unique Property Bulletin over the years.
For example the shape of this proposed shapely home bears an uncanny resemblance to “Tetris”…

The summary listings ABOVE this paragraph will have the FULL details added, including where appropriate, Planning Permissions, Building Warrants and links to Rightmove during May & June 2023.
=> This SUMMARY PAGE is to let our regular readers know what we are selling in our SURPLUS UNIQUE PROPERTY SALE.
We will be using the spare funds to build an ecological power generation station. This is to prove that it is possible to HALF the cost of electricity in the UK.
The ultimate aim is to build lots of these generator stations and all across the country.
The vast majority will be COMMUNITY OWNED. Typically for supplying electricity/heating for 50 to 500 local homes and businesses…
=> With electricity at HALF the current price.
=> Because as our first charity discovered, 400 people in the UK die of debt each year (click here).
When we manage to reduce the cost of electricity to affordable levels again, then this horrendous tragedy of debt-deaths should be reduced.
Hence our determination to get a move on. That is why we are uploading just the list to start and completing the full set of details for each item in the next few weeks.

Charity Number 2.
Registered by Russ McLean in 2012
Now run by Mr Iain Sim.
As well as registering our Creditcare Money Advice Charity in 1996 (here), the owner of this website and managing director of Argyll Group registered a second charity in 2012.
It is important to note that the Friends of TS Queen Mary charity is now managed by the co-founder, Mr Iain Sim. Russ McLean had become disabled following spinal surgery. Please don’t mention this as he is none too keen on being see in the light of pity. Quite the opposite, we are able to mention this occasionally as at least three of our Argyll group shareholders have a disability and it is the hope at this end of the project, folk will begin into see that being disabled is can be overcome.
For the purposes of the eco-electricity power generation project, it is important to make full disclosure. Hence mentioning the spinal surgery.
^^ Founding Trustees ^^
^^ Russ McLean (middle) and Iain Sim (right) ^^
Fortunately, Russ has recovered sufficiently and whilst Iain always extends the grace of inviting Russ back to the trustees at the Friends of TS Queen Mary project, the limitations that managing spinal conditions bring about, mean it would dilute the workload and be less than the best help to the Friends of TS Queen Mary charity. This is very tempting when the progress of this charity is seen…

Indeed, Russ is looking to persuade Iain to join with the likely eco-energy project’s charity arm.
So far, Iain has had to decline. We recently lost one of our patrons, Robbie Coltrane…
Conveniently, Russ McLean lives close to the OSCR offices (Office of the Scottish Charity Commissioner). So, it is becoming a well work path between his house and office to the northern office of the Charity Commissioners.
Once the charity for TS Queen Mary had been registered, it was still a struggle to raise a funds.
At this point, we were very fortunate in having Robbie Coltrane join the charity as Patron. Fundraising was given a handsome boost…
^^ Robbie Coltrane ^^
Patron of the TS Queen Mary Charity
Robbie helped raise huge amounts of money for the Friends of TS Queen Mary Charity.
The friends of TS Queen Mary charity has been incredibly lucky as it benefitted from having two patrons.
This patronage cannot be over-emphasised. Robbie alone was raising £12 to £24 a time through “Cameo” video birthday messages and other video personalised content (generally here). The amount raised have been awesome. In excess of £18,000 a year which, given the disabling pain Robbie had been suffering, was a remarkable contribution.
With great comfort, the relationship has been a two way street. Robbie’s declining health meant he was unable to work on his beloved classic cars. It was distressing see each beloved car go for sale as the maintenance was beyond this kind man.
But when the patronage of TS Queen Mary came up, a sparkle was reignited in Robbie’s eye. This was wonderful thing to see. Robbie really got stuck into the engineering and plans as well as the fundraising.
Without funds, the ship would never have made it from our original rescue attempts when it was at risk of being scrapped in 2012. lease take a moment to study these numbers. This is pivotal to making a philanthropic wish into a decent reality…

It would, of course, be the height of bad manners not to mention HRH Princess Anne. These were very happy days as Robbie and the Trustees had yearned for the ability (and funds to transform the TS Queen Mary from just a static educational exhibit, to a fully functional and maritime legislation/port of registry compliant sailing vessel.

Fundraising is now at £498,000 Per Annum.
Photo Attribution Thanks To Martin Shields
This photograph is one of Russ McLean’s favourites.
=> It pictures charity co-founder and current Chairman, Mr Iain Sim showing our charity patron, HRH Princess Anne around the ship.
Iain has worked very hard over 11 years to get the charity to the current healthy place.
In fact Iain has worked a near-miracle.
=> Many folk assumed the TS Queen Mary would always be a “static exhibit”. A quayside museum. Good, but not quite back to the days that so many associated with supporting this effort yearn to see.
Iain and the trustees, plus a considerable number of other helpers, along with hard work fundraising, always wanted to see TS Queen Mary completing the job she was built for:-
=> Rebuilt to the point where the ship would get its engines back and the rebuild would be up to statutory standard so that the ship could ail with a full complement of passengers again,
The Princess Royal made the announcement that the ship would sail gain under its own steam during a special visit…

This Next project
Or if you are NOT a fan of wind-turbines, you can take your pick, as we intend building a “proof-of-concept” one of each of these methods of electrcity generation…
Crucially the costs will be kept down so that they are a much more affordable HALF of what the current horrendous energy bills are doing.

Retained firefighter service has come to a mutually agreeable end. If anything can emphasise how important the AFFORDABLE ELETRICITY GENERATION project is, it is the fact that David has left one of his beloved firefighter jobs to devote more time to the work at what is likely to be our third charity.
How David manages to fit all that in plus family life and currently SEVEN ongoing projects with is beyond those of us that are getting on in years. David volunteers as director. He volunteers at the charities he is part of. Thankyou David, from the Scotslion and Unique Property Bulletin Teams.
Russ McLean is also a director of the various limited companies within which we ring-fence each building project.
The last element for this page, and possibly the most STARTLING for us, because this sort of thing does NOT generally happen to ordinary people like our crew at Argyll Group and Scotslion Ltd.
