There’s no such thing as too many beach days, especially when you live on one. Luckily, this charming cottage on Scotland’s Isle of Coll is for sale, accepting offers over £375,000 ($483,560).

Arinthluic is a small (if 48 acres could be described as small) estate on the Isle of Coll, an island in the North Atlantic to the west of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Coll is also known for sandy beaches and dunes, which you’ll have direct access to from Arinthluic’s gardens. If you’re looking for a private paradise, this could be it: The property is located on a secluded part of the island’s south coast. Not to mention, all of Coll is just 20 miles long by 3 miles wide, and according to records from 2013, has a total population of only 195.

And we mean private: the only way to access the property is to walk, bike, or quad a half mile from the main road. But there’s amenities nearby when you need them: In Arinagour village, “there is a doctor’s surgery, post Office and gift shop, general store, delicatessen, petrol station, Church, Hotel with a Café as well as a Craft and Art shop. There is also a well established Primary school and a vibrant Community Centre with a gym, sports hall and theatre facilities,” according to the listing.

The 1,315 square foot three bedroom, two bathroom whitewashed beach house is has a lot of charm, and features a breakfast room, utility room, and a conservatory. There is also a derelict cottage on the property that could be renovated.

If you’re worried just how many beach days you’ll get with the UK’s famous rainy weather, you’re in luck. Coll enjoys a microclimate and has been recorded as the sunniest place in Britain. The beach is great for birdwatching, whale, dolphin, and seal sightings, and with no light pollution, amazing stargazing.
