island of Kerrera has been described as a jewel in the
Firth of Lorne. Just a few minutes ferry ride away from
the mainland of Oban. It offers a peace and beauty that is
unique, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Kerrera is an ever-changing landscape from fertile low
pastures where the farming tradition goes back hundreds of
years - to bog and heathland, small coastal bays and
beaches with cliffs and caves - home to a rich tapestry of
flowers and wildlife.
This superb small island is only a short boat ride away.
As well as Gylen Castle there is a profusion of wildlife,
including a seal colony, wild goats and occasional visits
from golden and sea eagles. Porpoises, dolphins and otters
are also sometimes sighted by visitors to this remarkable
Kerrera has much to offer the independent-minded visitor
who appreciates wildlife, history and scenery. A trip to
the island is incomplete without a visit to Gylen Castle,
located on the south coast and a few minutes walk off the
main circular island track, and identified by a signpost
at Lower Gylen. Built in 1587 and sited above the waves
and rocks, it is a dramatic and magnificent place.
The view from the Castle faces down the Firth of Lorne to
other Argyll islands, and the atmosphere of isolation and
beauty must have changed little over the centuries.
