Treshnish Isles

The Treshnish Isles are owned by the Hebridean Trust and are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. They are an archipelago of small islands that have a unique landscape, rich wildlife and contain habitat, which is vital for several vulnerable species. They also have an archaeological history dating from early Viking times. The largest island is Lunga which can be reached by a boat trip from Fionnphort. On the island, during the summer months, you can see puffins, guillemots, razorbills, storm petrels, shags, cormorants and the occasional corncrake. Please be aware that whilst the Hebridean Trust owns the island there is no charge for entry. They cannot take responsibility for those who choose to go on the island and they warn that it can be dangerous due to the high cliffs and rugged nature of the island. Please check out their Treshnish Isles Leaflet on their website to familiarise yourself with their Guidance for visitors section.
