Community owned Eigg has a fascinating history, superb wildlife and a vibrant community. Whether you come to climb Britain’s largest pitchstone ridge, watch eagles over stunning white beaches, or learn about the world’s first renewably powered electricity grid, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Getting here is all part of the experience, but while you are here there’s lots of different ways of getting around. From hiring a bike (or kayak!) or heading out for a sail, to taking a taxi or walking wherever your curiosity takes you.
If you prefer to sail to Eigg or wild camp, you’ll have a great time here too.
