Originally home to large slate quarries, Easdale virtually emptied in the decades after commercial quarrying ended early in the 20th century. The new century brought a new lease of life together with a growing population and an active community spirit. The island boasts a unique community hall and is home to the annual World Stone Skimming Championships each September.

Many of the old workers' cottages have been restored, one of which now houses the interesting Easdale Folk Museum, near the main square. Walking is the best way to see the island (you can walk around it in under an hour) - in fact, it's the only way as Easdale has no roads.
