A British teacher Piers Casimir-Mrowczynski who has been diagnosed with cancer 3-years earlier has bought up the tiny Mackenzie Island near the isle of Islay for 55,000 pounds sterling as reported in mailonline of 22nd April 2012.

The 50-year old Piers is head of ICT at Beechwood Park boarding school in St Albans, Hertfordshire and he wanted the lonely and uninhabited island to be the final resting place for him and his wife Pauline, also 50 – their burial ground.

Piers Casimir-Mrowczynski is a father of two and a computer expert and had undergone 18 weeks of chemotherapy in 2010.

The island is located about 220 yards offshore from the picturesque village of Portnahaven and is a site of 42.7 acre of rock site and lacks mains services, such as electricity, water and drainage services.

He has not yet seen the island physically – he has only seen photographs but that has impressed him and his children 12-year-old son Miles and 11-year-old daughter Lydia are delighted at the prospect of owning a whole island.
