Following on from What I did on my summer holidays: Part two – Kerrera
Island 3: Lismore
Lismore is an island in the Inner Hebrides, reachable from Oban.
It is 10 miles long (but fairly thin) and takes some time to explore.
There are beautiful views everywhere.
And a lot of history. The Lismore Gaelic Heritage Centre tells the story of the island.
Two ferries run to Lismore. The larger car ferry operated by Caledonian MacBrayne runs from Oban to Achnacroish in the centre of the island. The journey takes around 1 hour. Booking is recommended.
At the north end of the island, a smaller passenger ferry runs between Point on Lismore, and Port Appin on the mainland. The crossing takes around 10 minutes.
We visited on a hot, clear day and it was spectacular. I look forward to visiting again for a better look.
