Island Trip

This trip includes 1 hour ashore on one of the many scenic islands in Loch Roag. Marvel at the sea caves & take a stroll along deserted beaches before your invigorating return journey.

For the first part of this trip we take you on a cruise to look at the wildlife, seals, birds and basking sharks, before choosing a suitable landing place for you to go ashore and explore the island, usually Little Bernera or Pabbay. Many of these remote islands were previously inhabited leaving a rich legacy of oral tradition. Your time ashore gives you the opportunity to picnic with your family on a deserted beach, or walk over hills that offer you spectacular views, before your return journey.

Little Bernera lies between the sea lochs of West and East Loch Roag, immediately to the north of Great Bernera. The island rises to a height of 42m (137 feet) and has an area of 138 ha.

A few centuries ago, the island was the place where people of the surrounding villages were buried, before a cemetery was built in that village. Today, gravestones can still be seen on the island, though they are beginning to disappear into the ground. At Traigh an Teampaill, there is a ruined chapel and small graveyard.
