The Small Isles
The Small Isles, Lochaber’s Hidden Treasure
From Mallaig or Arisaig, come over the sea to the Small Isles and unlock their treasure chest of rich cultural heritage, varied wildlife, unspoilt landscapes, outstanding geology and beautiful sandy beaches.
Eigg, Rum, Muck and Canna all offer superb walking with fabulous vistas and stunning scenery. An Sgurr, the distinctive towering landmark of Eigg, as well as Compass Hill on Canna and Beinn Airein on Muck are all made out of volcanic lavas, spewing out of ancient volcanoes on Rum and Skye.
Hundreds of flowering species and an abundant birdlife also make each of the Small Isles a special destination for the wildlife enthusiast. Many of their sea-birds can be spotted from the ferries as well as other summer visitors, porpoises, dolphins, Minke whales and Basking sharks.
The islands also offer a wealth of archeological sites and unique historical attractions which can easily be explored on a day-trip from Mallaig or Arisaig, from Rum's Kinloch Castle to ,Eigg's Crofting Museum and the Canna House Collections.
Each island has art and crafts or sporting activities on offer, a variety of places to sample good local food and a range of unique and original hand made gifts to take back from your visit.
Whether you explore them one at a time or you choose to island hop, each of the Small Isles will reward you with a unique island experience whatever the season.
