Argyll & the Isles

Easdale Island is the smallest permanently-inhabited island of the Inner Hebrides, off Scotland’s west coast. Situated in the Firth of Lorn, about 15 miles south of Oban, Argyll, it covers an area of less than 10 hectares but has a permanent population of about 70. The historical remains of what was once the centre of the Scottish slate mining industry can be explored, and the island museum is well worth a visit.
