While owning your own house is impressive, how many can say they own their own village?

Well, now you’re in luck! An idyllic Scottish village is up for sale for a mere £125,000 ($173,000) - notably cheaper than most 1-bedroom properties in most cities.

The Old Village of Lawers is 3.31 acres of breathtaking Highland scenery situated on the shores of Loch Tay.

The ancient, ruined village boasts 17th-century ruins, scenic walking routes, native woodland, and believe-it-or-not, your own private beach.

This sounds too good to be true, right? What’s the catch?

Well... it’s said to be haunted.

Amongst the ruined buildings in The Old Village of Lawers, there’s an annexed byre and stable which is said to stand on the ground of an earlier house, which was destroyed in 1645.

The ruin left behind is famously known as the House of Lawers - the last woman who occupied the home, Lady of Lawers, is rumoured to haunt the village.

The Lady of Lawers was respected, but also feared for her eerie prophecies that often came true.

She planted an ash tree next to the church. The Lady of Lawers predicted it would split the church once it reaches the height of the gable. The church roof did indeed collapse.

An even freakier prophecy of hers predicted that if anyone damaged the tree that she had planted, would meet an unfortunate end.

In the 1800s, a local farmer, John Campbell, made a huge mistake and chopped down the tree - a series of unfortunate events followed. He was later gored to death by his own bull, his assistant went mad and the horse dropped down dead.

According to brokers Goldcrest, the 1841 Census suggests the village occupied just 17 people. By 1891, it decreased to 7 - all of which lived in the Pier Master’s house. By 1926, the area was completely desolate.

Interested? Be quick! Since being listed on Friday, Goldcrest have been flooded with inquiries.
