In Loch Finlaggan are three artificial islands. You can walk to Eilean Mor (large island) – in the past there would have been a causeway to Eilean na Comhairle (the council island), where the Lord of the Isles would have been installed.
The ‘interpretation centre’ was extremely good, I especially liked the reception desk in the shape of a Viking long ship.
There were lots of lovely finds, including this Christ, a pilgrim badge from Rome, and a delicate buckle from a dog collar.
Walking out across the walkway gave us a good look at the flora & fauna of the peat bog at the loch edge.
With views over to the ‘Paps of Jura’, this was a unique & magical place.
