THE PERFECT PLACE TO START

Sleat is an ideal base from which to explore the Small Isles of Canna, Muck, Rum and Eigg, and it gives you a great opportunity to leave the car behind and let the CalMac ferry take you to discover these beautiful islands, maybe spotting whales and dolphins along the way.  You can take a non-landing cruise to get a brief taste of all of them, or take some extra time to explore one or more, even staying overnight if you like.

Muck, the smallest of the Small Isles is great for walking and picnicking, Canna has been a bird sanctuary for many years, Eigg, famous for being owned by the community that lives there, has arts, crafts and music events throughout the summer, and Rum, the largest of the islands is best-known for the Edwardian Kinloch Castle, and of course the deer population as featured on Autumnwatch on the BBC. And all of that is without the stunning views that can be enjoyed from all of them.

So, just as a suggestion, a walk around Canna and the Isle of Sanday managed by the National Trust for Scotland which you can reach by catching the first ferry to Mallaig on a Wednesday and then joining the ferry to the Small Isles, which will land you on Canna for 2 hours - ideal for a picnic lunch, and then take you back to Mallaig in time to catch the ferry back to Armadale - Perfect!

Call at the CalMac office at Armadale Pier for times and prices of the ferry or visit their website showing the summer timetable for the Small Isles service by clicking here.
