Lismore is a small island near Oban on the West coast of Scotland, 10 miles long and about a mile wide.
Escape the Crowds
The island is home to a vibrant & diverse West coast community.
Unlike Skye or Iona, it has not yet been overrun by visitors, leaving you to discover a wild landscape of unspoilt views, ruined Viking castles and Pictish settlements, ancient religious sites, secluded coves, fresh-water lochs and magnificent starry skies.
