Welcome to our island

The Isle of Luing has changed little over the past two hundred years, with white-washed quarriers cottages, lush pasture and abundant wildlife. The island is a tranquil paradise, with stunning views to Mull, Scarba, the Garvellachs and the many other small islands that surround it. We hope that you learn a little more about the island from this website, and maybe come and visit us soon to experience the peace and scenery for yourself.

easy to visit

Easily accessible from the Scottish mainland by a short ferry crossing, the Isle of Luing is perfect for a day trip from Oban and the surrounding area. The islands charm lies in its natural beauty and unspoilt peaceful scenery which may be explored by car, bicycle or on foot. Interpretive panels located throughout the island give an insight into the history, culture and wildlife of Luing and its neighbouring islands.  If you are planning to come to Luing for a day, why not combine it with a visit to our neighbouring islands of Seil and Easdale, with a museum, restaurants, pubs and shops to while away your time.
