Arisaig

 

Arisaig is Britain’s most westerly station. A summer ferry service sails daily from the marina to the Small Islands of Eigg, Rum and Muck. There is a hotel with restaurant/bar, a shop, a post office and a cafe in the village.

Arisaig Bay, Loch na Ceall, is a beautiful location much favoured as an anchorage for yachtsmen and visitors looking for the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful seascapes  and views over to the mountains of Rum and the islands of Eigg and Muck. Many evenings are favoured with spectacular sunsets. Arisaig itself makes a superb location for a holiday with the opportunity to walk and fish, go bird and seal watching, and enjoy boat trips to the islands. A good start would be to visit the Land, Sea and Islands Centre in Arisaig which provides all the information you need for a great holiday visit.
