The Tayvallich Estate includes ‘Danna Island’ – an uninhabited private island of 811 hectares, 80 miles off the coast of Northern Ireland

It occupies most of the Tayvallich Peninsula, which is rich in cultural history – including ecclesiastical remains from the eighth century.

Danna Island has been described as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the estate.

It includes three properties, a series of farm buildings and a beautiful vaulted boathouse, woodland, grassland and over 6km of coastal frontage with two jetties, beaches and several smaller uninhabited islands.

There is no main house on the estate, but there are 13 houses and cottages, which are currently occupied by workers and used for short term holiday accommodation.

The largest property is Coshandrochaid House, which is occupied by the current owners when in residence. The modern two-storey house was completed in 2011 on the site of an old stone farmhouse, reusing much of the original stone.

The Northern Ireland coast is less than 50 miles from Danna so is accessible for sailing from the estate.
