Eriskay is an island in the southern Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland, connected to South Uist by a causeway.
The island is well-known for a few things; it is home to the famous Eriskay pony breed, it was the location of the S.S Politician’s crash in 1941, which prompted one of Scotland’s most famous stories called ‘Whiskey Galore!’, and it was the inspiration for the popular 1969 song ‘Eriskay love lilt’ by Judith Durham & The Seekers.
As well as a fascinating cultural heritage, Eriskay boasts a stunning natural landscape. It’s speckled with lochs and lochans with crystalline water, lined by secluded beaches and draped in lush green moorland.
Eriskay’s ferry terminal is on the west coast, offering frequent daily crossings to Ardmhor on the Isle of Barra to the south.
