Eigg from Camusdarach

A view of the Isle of Eigg, from Camusdarach, across the water on the mainland.

Eigg lies south of the Isle of Skye and north of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, and is one of the Small Isles of the Inner Hebrides. It is the second largest island in the Inner Hebrides after Rum, and there is evidence that it has been inhabited since at least the Bronze Age.

The highest hill on the Isle of Eigg at 393m (1,289 ft), the Sgurr of Eigg (which can be seen protruding on the left extent of the island) was formed some 58 million years ago, from a regional volcanic explosion, centred on the Isle of Rum. The hill has an impressive appearance and affords excellent views of the surrounding Small Isles and the mainland.
