Mingulay, Berneray and Pabbay are three islands of unrivalled wildness and beauty. Located at the southern tip of the Western Isles, they have some of the finest coastal landscapes in Scotland and an exceptional natural and cultural heritage, including internationally important seabird colonies. They are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Though Mingulay and Pabbay have been uninhabited since 1912 (and Berneray since its lighthouse was automated in 1980), the well-preserved villages and field systems provide fascinating evidence of the challenging lifestyle of the generations who managed to survive here over many thousands of years.

Scotland’s first and – so far – only known inshore cold water coral reef, thought to be around 4,000 years old, can be found east of Mingulay.
