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.
SPRING - SMALL ISLES
Spring can be a great time to come over and enjoy the many walking routes on the isles. The paths are clear with the bracken having not yet had a chance to take over. The days are lengthening and the temperature usually agreeable. Check out Walk Highlands for a great selection. Spring is also a significant time for our sheep farmers with ewes lambing all through the spring months. You might have the opportunity to join in on a spot of lambing or help care for a lamb.
By the end of Spring, the puffins will have returned. Head to Canna and enjoy the walk to the puffin spectacle at the sea stacks (Dun Mòr and Dun Beag). Unwind to the sounds of nature and perhaps enjoy a picnic of locally sourced products in one of our more sheltered bays.
