The Isle of Luing is one of our beautiful local islands to the south of Oban. You can reach it either through Oban town or taking the single track back road to Kilmore then south along the A816 taking the B844 signed for Balvicar, Seil, Luing and Easdale. There is a small car ferry across the Cuan Sound that takes only a few minutes, running most of the day .. with time off for lunch etc. Once on the island you can travel south to the historic living villages of Toberonochy, Blackmill, and then west to Cullipool where the Atlantic Islands Centre offers a warm welcome much of the year. The views from each settlement are awe inspiring, whether into the other Atlantic islands or way out across the sea to Mull and down south towards Ireland. In the middle of the Island the Kilchattan Kirkyard is well worth a stop and a wander with heritage from the Norse to the recent wars. There are evocative markings of Birlinns (Norse and early Argyll sailing ships) in the stones of the church, as well as a Commonwealth War Grave memorial from World War I. At the Atlantic Islands Centre you will find much more heritage of the islands history curated by the Luing History group who have done some very interesting research in their past with prehistory to present day studies, including raising £15,000 from public donations during Covid for a Lidar survey of the island that will provide so much future understanding of the landscape. There are many hidden gems around the island like the Fairy pool, the Slate quarries, the Luing cattle roaming freely between the cattle grids. Modern land management for habitat diversity is clear with new tree plantings clearly defined.
