Muck

The ‘Isle of pigs’ in Gaelic, Muck is the most fertile of the Small Isles. It once supported a large population but in 1828, after the kelp market collapsed, 150 islanders were evicted and shipped off via Tobermory to Nova Scotia. Today some 40 people live on the island.

For the last 100 years the island has been in the ownership of the same family. It is actively farmed with cattle and sheep, and some highland ponies. Several people make a living from crafts, with residential craft courses being offered. There is large craftshop and tea room.

Accommodation options include holiday cottages, a hotel, bed and breakfast, and a bunkhouse.

Passenger ferry from Mallaig and Arisaig.
