Insider was told by a spokesperson for Goldcrest that there are no buildings on the island.
They said that it might be possible to construct a small cabin, but this would require planning.
Crn Deas is a part of the Summer Isles. This island group off the west coast got its name because local crofters used to graze their sheep there in summer. Crn Iar, Crn Beag and other islands are also part of this uninhabited group.
According to Goldcrest's website, the island can be reached by boat in 25 minutes from Badentarbat Pier (or Old Dornie Harbour).
Insider was told by Fenning Welstead, founder of Goldcrest that "CrnDeas is very special" and provides the ideal retreat for anyone looking to get away from it all. They can set up their own camping site and enjoy the most stunning surroundings in Scotland.
