Eigg is home to musicians and craft workers, writers, film-makers and photographers. It even has its own record label and artist residency, craft shop co-operative, an annual Fèis, the Howlin Fling Festival and a regular programme of concerts, ceilidhs, plays, workshops and films.
Regular traditional music sessions happen at Galmisdale Bay Cafe and Bar in the summer months and Donna the Piper pipes in the ferries and teaches Ceilidh dancing so you can strip the willow with confidence.
