Small Isles - Eigg | Rum | Muck | Canna
Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna add their distinctive profiles to the western horizon and are classic ‘get-away-from-it-all’ escape destinations.
Wildlife and walks, interesting geology and fossils, plus a welcome from a community running affairs on their own island.
An important island nature reserve, the largest and most rugged of the Small Isles is noted, wildlife-wise, for red deer and breeding Manx shearwaters.
Fertile and farmed, the smallest of the Small Isles has plenty of interest by way of birdlife and gentle rambling.
The best harbour and most sheltered anchorage in the Small Isles, Canna is popular with visiting yachts.
Each of the Small Isles has its own personality, from the quiet pastoral air of Muck to the rugged wilderness of Rum. But they all have good ferry and cruise links from the mainland.
