Welcome to our Community Website

After a four-month lockdown, Lismore will partially re-open to visitors from the 3rd of July. Please be aware of the following changes:

  • Ferry services are still running on different timetables, and are able to take less passengers due to social distancing rules. For more info on timetables, guidelines and booking options, click here

We are in the process of putting together some visitor guidelines and recommendations for people who are coming to stay in a self catering holiday let on the island as well as day-visitors. These will be published on this site within the coming days... Thank you & Stay Safe!

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.
