Welcome to Isle of Lismore, or Lios Mòr - meaning the 'Great Garden' in Gaelic

Lismore is a 10 mile long Inner Hebridean island near Oban.

The population of the island is at present about 170. We are a small, friendly community with a strong community spirit.

On the island you can find a medieval Parish Church, a Primary School and a Public Hall, as well as our most recent addition, the award-winning Gaelic Heritage Centre & Museum Gift Shop.

We have a well stocked island Shop & Post Office, and the fully licenced Isle of Lismore Cafe, situated at the Heritage Centre.   

There is self-catering and bed-and breakfast accommodation on the island, as well as Bike Hire at the North end foot ferry, a taxi service and Land Rover Tours & Picnics. Check out the ferry timetables for the Oban Car Ferry (55 mins) or Port Appin foot ferry (5 mins) before you visit.
