Area: Situated on the former slate mining island of Easdale, 15 miles south of the town of Oban in Argyll, the island has around 60 permanent inhabitants and has a fantastic sense of community; a warm welcome awaits any visitor. The island's local pub is open all year round and serves a selection of locally brewed ales. The attached tearoom/restaurant is open during the summer months and serves award-winning, locally caught seafood. Easdale is a peaceful and car free island, allowing the visitor unrestricted enjoyment of the natural environment.

There is a network of footpaths and it typically takes around 25 minutes to walk the entire island, which includes climbing the 125-ft hill that offers panoramic views of surrounding islands.

Access to Easdale Island is via a three-minute passenger ferry crossing from the village of Ellenabeich on the Isle of Seil. Oban; the gateway to the other Hebridean islands, is less than 30-minutes drive via the famous 'Bridge over the Atlantic' that connects the Isle of Seil to the rest of Scotland. A number of supermarkets and other general tourist facilities are available here.

The Easdale Island Community Hall stages regular entertainment throughout the year with nationally and internationally acclaimed acts performing to a full auditorium.

Seafari Adventures offer a number of high speed boat excursions departing from Ellenabeich, including trips to the world's second largest whirlpool at Corryvreckan with the opportunity to spot some of the local wildlife, which includes; whales, dolphins, basking sharks, white tailed eagles, deer, goats, seals and their pups.

The space
Extensively refurbished in 2015, An Rubha Cottage offers modern living, comfort and unrestricted views across the Firth of Lorn towards the Isle of Mull. Due to being on such a small island, with only around 60 permanent inhabitants, there is a great sense of community and a warm welcome awaits any visitor. The property is a great place to watch the sunset and or rise over the Island but more than that it's a place of peace and tranquillity, the roaring of car engines is replaced by the calls of birds and the crashing of waves.

Where you’ll be

Oban, Argyll, United Kingdom

Easdale is separated from the neighbouring island of Seil by a narrow channel that is crossed on a five minute ferry ride from Ellenabeich.

Originally home to large slate quarries, Easdale virtually emptied in the decades after commercial quarrying ended early in the 20th century. The new century brought a new lease of life together with a growing population and an active community spirit. The island boasts a unique community hall and is home to the annual World Stone Skimming Championships each September.

Many of the old workers' cottages have been restored, one of which now houses the interesting Easdale Folk Museum, near the main square. Walking is the best way to see the island (you can walk around it in under an hour) - in fact, it's the only way as Easdale has no roads.
