El alojamiento
With a population of around 180, this friendly island still has many Gaelic speakers and is ideal for a quiet, relaxing holiday surrounded by beautiful scenery. Just 12 miles long and 1.5 miles at its widest point, Lismore is ideal for cycling (bikes can be hired on the island or in Port Appin) and offers many interesting walks with spectacular views of the sea and mountains.

The name Lismore comes from the Gaelic lios-mór meaning 'Great Garden'. With its fertile soil, the island is blessed with an abundance of wild flowers and bird life. It is estimated that there are nearly 300 different types of plants here and 130 species of birds (including herons and skylarks).

Gaelic Heritage Museum
The Lismore Historical Society opened its new Lismore Gaelic Heritage Centre (Ionad Naomh Moluag) in March 2007. This purpose-built building houses an exhibition (Tel: 01631 760030) and a cafe with balcony (Tel: 01631 760020). This is adjacent to Tigh Iseabal Dhaidh which is a traditional late 19th century cottage. Open to visitors during the summer months (closed Sundays). Admission fee payable. Tel: 01631 760257.

There are numerous ancient historical remains on the island including many Bronze Age cairns and Iron Age duns.

Tirfuir Broch
Tirfuir Broch which can be seen from Balnagown Croft – is one of the best preserved galleried Pictish brochs in the country. Evidence of earlier occupation was uncovered at Balnagown when a Neolithic stone axe-head was found dating from 3500 B.C.

Castle Coeffin
A ruined 13th century hall-house and courtyard was probably built by the MacDougalls of Lorn, but later passed to the Campbells. The name is said to come from Caifen, a Viking prince whose sister was said to haunt the castle until her remains were returned to Norway to be buried by her lover's side. Achadun Castle ('The Bishop's Castle) – this 13th castle was held by the Bishops of Argyll until the 16th century. Part of their original cathedral is now the local parish church.

Barr Mor
The island's highest hill (400 feet) allows superb panoramic views of mountains and lochs on the mainland, as well as views over the Firth of Lorn to the island of Mull.

Lismore Parish Church
Also known as the Cathedral of the Isles, Lismore Parish Church is built from parts of the island's original cathedral which was burnt down during the Reformation. The churchyard has some fine Medieval tombstones and is reputed to be the burial place of Saint Moluag who reached Lismore from Ireland in 561 A.D. and set up what became an important monastic centre.

An Sàilein
Meaning 'the creek' in Gaelic – abandoned kilns and cottages at the old limestone quarry.

The Lady's Rock
Near Lismore Lighthouse at the very south of the island at the entrance to the Sound of Mull was the place where Maclean of Duart decide to maroon his wife in 1527. Unfortunately for him, by the time he went to announce her 'death' to the Earl of Argyll, she had already been rescued by local fishermen.
