This house on South Ascrib, in Loch Snizort, Skye, looks prominent, especially on an 74-acre island that rises to 135'. In the past there was a monk in residence in the vicinity, but he chose an underground cell. In the 1990s, the owner, Baron Palumbo, made application for an underground house, but although this was granted, it was not fulfilled. Above ground some 600 seals live on or around and make up 1% of the European total.
