The Highland cottage owned by disgraced TV presenter Jimmy Savile has been sold for more than double its asking price at auction today.
The remote three-bedroom property in Glencoe was put on the market by trustees of the late DJ's estate for £100,000 but went under the hammer for £212,000.
The cottage was sold as lot 20 of 29 at an evening auction hosted by Ross Harper Property Auctions in Glasgow.
The cottage was vandalised in the wake of the accusations
The firm described it as ''a traditional refurbished detached cottage in an attractive location within scenic Highland countryside'' and highlighted its proximity to Glencoe Ski Centre.
''The grounds also boast a large outbuilding with one bedroom chalet, log store and there are garden grounds with waterfalls and a large parking area to front,'' the property website said.
The cottage went on sale for £100,000
Savile, uncovered as one of Britain's most prolific sex offenders, bought the whitewashed cottage named Allt Na Reigh in 1998.
It was the target of vandals in the aftermath of the revelations with ''Jimmy the Beast'' spray-painted across the walls.
