Islanders Adam and Cathra Kelliher Seek Visionary

The owners of Taransay in Scotland’s Western Isles, New Zealand-born former war correspondent Adam Kelliher and his Scottish wife Cathra, are looking for a partner to carry forward a nature restoration project, while also reviving its cultural heritage, encompassing sustainable eco-tourism and community benefit, Peter Walker writes for Insider.

Britain’s largest uninhabited island was used in 2000 as the location for the year-long BBC series Castaway. 

Savills is now offering the opportunity, on behalf of the Kellihers – who  purchased Taransay in June 2011 – to restore Taransay’s biodiversity and social history, while leaving a light carbon footprint.

Lucy Stanfield-Jenner, Savills’ head of natural capital in Scotland, said: “This opportunity would suit a visionary partner who is passionate about supporting the Kellihers towards creating a genuinely unique nature restoration project on Britain’s largest uninhabited island, whilst ensuring social inclusion and celebrating the island’s geological, archaeological, historical and cultural heritage.”
