The Island Trip includes one and a half hours ashore on one of the many scenic islands in Loch Roag. For the first part of this trip we take you on a cruise to look at the wildlife, seals, birds and basking sharks, before choosing a suitable landing place for you to go ashore and explore the island, usually Little Bernera or Pabbay. Many of these remote islands were previously inhabited leaving a rich legacy of oral tradition. Your time ashore gives you the opportunity to picnic with your family on a deserted beach, or walk over hills that offer you spectacular views, before your return journey.
Little Bernera (Scottish Gaelic: Bearnaraigh Beag)
Little Bernera lies between the sea lochs of West and East Loch Roag, immediately to the north of Great Bernera. The island rises to a height of 42m (137 feet) and has an area of 138 ha.
A few centuries ago, the island was the place where people of the surrounding villages were buried, before a cemetery was built in that village. Today, gravestones can still be seen on the island, though they are beginning to disappear into the ground. At Traigh an Teampaill, there is a ruined chapel and small graveyard.
