You can’t miss Eigg’s most distinctive feature, the pitchstone peak of the Sgurr, as you approach on the ferry. The walk to the top of the mountain takes about two hours, and the panoramic views from the top are spectacular. Go hunting for seashells at Galmisdale bay, or take a picnic to Laig Bay for the afternoon. Eigg is big on renewable energy, and is on track to be the first self-sufficient island in the world. In keeping with its green ethos, you can hire bikes and kayaks to explore the best of the island.
