Argyll & the Isles - Home


This long fertile limestone island was once a major centre of Celtic Christianity, later it was the seat of the medieval bishopric of Argyll. By the mid-19th some 1,500 people lived on the island, today the population is around 150.

A peaceful place, Lismore is perhaps best explored by bicycle or on foot. It has a well preserved broch and a medieval church, and is well known for its many rare wildflowers.

The Lismore Heritage Museum is well worth visiting as is the Lismore Café.

A range of bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation is available.

Car ferry from Oban, passenger ferry from Port Appin.
