Top 9 things to do on the Isle of Muck

  1. Visit beautiful Gallanach Beach. Enjoy a picnic or a swim. Look out for interesting bird life while you are there; Gannets give great diving displays and if you are very lucky a visiting Sea-Eagle can be spotted occasionally.

  2. Visit the Tea Room. A 5 minute walk from the pier, the tearoom is a hub for islanders and visitors alike.  Offering homemade food, cakes and sweet treats, they also run a pizza night most Wednesdays throughout summer (booking strongly advised). 

  3. Visit the Green Shed for local crafts and produce and listen out for Corncrakes which nest in the long grass and Flag Iris nearby.  

  4. Wherever you go on Muck you are never far from the sea.  Keep your eyes on the water looking out for dorsal fins; Basking Sharks, Minke Whales, Dolphins, Porpoises and even Orcas are seen in the waters around Muck.

  5. Visit our Community Hall.  It is open 24hrs.  Whether you are a camper needing a hot shower or a family looking for somewhere to play games on a wet day, this is the place to be. Ceilidhs and other events are regularly held throughout the summer. Visitors are always warmly welcomed.

  6. Climb the Beinn and enjoy the spectacular panoramic views.  On a clear day you can often see the large ferry sailing from Oban, past Mull and Coll to Barra in the Outer Hebrides.  To the north and west are the mountains of Skye and the mainland.

  7. Walk through Keil, the cleared village ruins above Port Mòr and try to imagine what life was like here in the past.

  8. Visit Camus Mòr at low tide.  This dramatic stretch of shore has slabs of Jurassic sedimentary limestone visible at low tide.  As a result this beach is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Small numbers of Manx Shearwater have been seen nesting here in recent years.

  9. Visit Shell Bay on the north-west cost. Colourful shells cover the whole bay and there are beautiful views out to those island and the Isle of Rum.
