What there is to do on the beautiful Isle of Luing
The island is one of the industrial Atlantic islands, just 6 miles long and 1.5 wide, with a rich prehistoric heritage. Just 20 miles from the house, you can bypass Oban by going down the back road just after the Connel Bridge, across country (single track undulating road) to Kilmore.
There is a small car ferry across the Cuan Sound, that takes minutes to get you across to the north end.
Or you can be a foot passenger, and hire a bike at Sunnybrae caravan park just on the other side.
Wander around the roads admiring the views, the gorgeous Luing cattle, and the historical sites. .On the east side, overlooking to Mull, is the village of Cullipool where the community have built the Atlantic Islands Centre, a shop, cafe, and the historical society exhibitions.
Down to the south and the workers villages, you will find interpretation boards around the island.
Each year there are active archaeology studies, always learning more about the life of the island from early Man into the mid 1900s. The quarries are testament to the quality slate that was prized around the country. Now they are a mecca for wildlife, as are the shores and air around the island.
It is a very beautiful area to take your kayak.
