The islands of Canna, Eigg, Muck and Rum lie just south of the Isle of Skye, sitting between the west coast Scottish mainland and the Western Isles. Each island has an abundance of wildlife, rich heritage and incredible landscapes but, while they are close together, each island feels very different. One thing they have in common is they each generate their own electricity from renewable sources.
WINTER - SMALL ISLES
Winter can be incredible time to visit the Small Isles. The days are crisp and short, the nights dark and twinkling. You might be lucky enough to witness the spectacular aurora borealis or shooting stars race across the sky . It's more of an adventure to get here, but once you do you will be rewarded for your effort. Observe as the grey seals pup on the shores around the Small Isles, study our migrating birds, perhaps even get the opportunity to watch the west coast orca pack swim by the isles. On the days when the weather is at its most elemental, sit by a window with a warming bowl of soup and watch the weather roll in and roll out, study the ever changing light on the landscape and listen to the sea roar as it's whipped into a frenzy.
