The Island of Eigg, known as the jewel in the Hebridean crown for its outstanding beauty, is one of the small Isles comprising Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna and is the closest to the mainland of Scotland. The island was bought in 1997 by the Isle of Eigg Heritage Trust, a partnership between the residents of Eigg, the Highland Council, and the Scottish Wildlife Trust at the time. It has an active community and is served by both a seasonal ferry from Arisaig and a new regular car ferry from Mallaig. Facilities have been added near the Pier and comprise a tearoom/community hall, craft shop and well stocked general store. The island also benefits from a doctor’s surgery, nursery/primary school and council day-care centre. The island itself, with its distinctive Sgurr Ridge, is dotted with sandy beaches and is a haven for wildlife, while the surrounding waters harbour seals, porpoises and dolphins.
