Escorted Rail Tours to The Small Isles

Explore the Inner Hebrides

Lying off the coastline from Mallaig, between the Isle of Skye and Mull, the Small Isles are part of the Inner Hebrides. They have been designated collectively as one of Scotland's National Scenic Areas, for their unsurpassed scenery and outstanding scientific interest.

The four principal islands are Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna. The tiny island of Eigg is the closest of the rugged, craggy islands to the mainland. It is dominated by 'an Sgurr', a dramatic, pitchstone ridge that sits on a hill and towers over the island. Eigg and its surrounding waters also provide a lively feeding ground for a wide range of marine animals, including minke whales, dolphins and porpoises, as well as a loud and varied population of seabirds.

The Isle of Muck has the distinction of being the smallest of the Small Isles. The island is just one mile wide and two miles long and is home to a permanent population of just 38 people, though a much larger population of seals.
