The Island of Luing is situated in the Firth of Lorne 18 miles south of Oban, a forgotten island in the age of digital communication and a refreshing escape from the pressures of modern living but easily reached by a short and sheltered car ferry crossing.
Take a walk back to the time of your ancestors. Facing the mountains of Mull and surrounded by the majestic Firth of Lorne and turbulent tidal forces flowing up the Sounds of Luing and Shuna through the Cuan Sound and Fladda, Luing is an invigorating location with an equally dynamic and lively population of 200 persons. The inhabitants come from all walks of life; some are hard working, some less so, and the mix gives the island a unique combination of interesting local characters, enterprising incomers and others who are beyond description other than to say Luing would be all the poorer without them!
Be promised of a sound welcome but be equally assured of the peace and tranquillity expected of such a unique location.
Visit the two well preserved iron-age forts, the twelfth century chapel, the ancient slate quarries which have supplied Iona Cathedral and many other a famous roof; enjoy the local produce of prawns and lobsters, and take a walk on the dark side along the spectacular coastline of tumbled slate and abandoned mine workings! There is a small children`s play park and stony beach for the younger person to search for marine creatures and beautiful polished stones.
If you are still not satisfied, and for the more energetic, try bird watching, cycling, wind-surfing, fishing, sailing and canoeing, and especially for you lunatics, a rib ride through the notorious whirlpool at Corrievreckan!
Where better to stay than Creagard Country House situated in the Conservation village of Cullipool and offering the discerning visitor a warm and comfortable base to explore the region whatever the weather.
