Beith Craobh Iostan ("Birch Tree Cottage" in Scottish Gaelic) is a Territory in the Empire of Austenasia situated on the Scottish island of Coll.

The land was annexed on 13 April 2014 by the Empire of Austenasia after being offered to the Austenasian government by the now Lord Alastair Cranston, Baron of Beith Craobh Iostan, whose family owns the land. A holiday home was recently built on the land (after the photograph to the right was taken), but is uninhabited for most of the year - with no permanent population, the land was annexed as a Territory rather than a Town. Beith Craobh Iostan has no Governor due to the Austenasian government not being in contact with anybody who lives near enough to the land to administer it.

The presence of a peat bog on the land may be used as a source of fuel in the future.

There is here also a naval base for the use of Centuria II Ondiara's only moterised boat, the flagship(and only ship in the British) the Midsummer
