A small island south of the coast of Scotland, which became notorious after the murder, was put up for sale.
Little Ross Island was on all front pages in 1960, when a lighthouse keeper killed his colleague.
The island, which has 29 hectares, is on sale for £325,000 ($427,000). The offer includes the original six-bedroom lighthouse keeper’s cottage, which is in need of refurbishment, as well as three B-listed ruinous barns, as well as a yard that is right next to the lighthouse, but not a lighthouse.
The tower lighthouse was designed and built by Alan Stevenson and started working in 1843.
The lighthouse worked until the 1960. of the notorious murder.
When then Secretary of the Royal Rescue Corps Tomas Robertson Colin came to the island on a trip with his son, they found the body of the lighthouse keeper Hugh Clarke (62).
His clothes were raised to the neck, while in the lower part of the body he was naked. Around him was a huge pool of blood, and a lot of blood was soaked in linen. Until then, there was no such crime scene there. When the doctor came to the scene, he discovered that Clark was killed with three bullets in his head while he was sleeping.
A later investigation turned out that the killer was another lighthouse keeper Robert Dickson, for whom doctors found that he had serious mental disorders of personality.
There’s no word on this in the ad, and it’s actually described as a one-in-one opportunity to have assets that offer an alternative lifestyle or vacation.
However, potential buyers will need their own boat or helicopter to reach the island.
