The birthplace of General Lachlan MacQuarrie, the ‘father of Australia’, the island was the scene of some of the worst Clearances when three quarters of the population were deported between 1846 and 1851.
Today the 16 people who live on the island are involved in cattle and sheep farming, fish farming, oyster farming and tourism. There are no cars. With a series of walks of varying lengths and the licensed Boathouse tea room, Ulva is a perfect destination for a day trip.
Ferry on request
