DAY VISITOR CRossing
Departing from the Old Pier in Lamlash, the crossing to Holy Isle takes approximately 15 minutes. You will have 4 hours to spend on and enjoy Holy Isle before the return boat to Lamlash.
Things to do
You can take a walk along the coastal path on the west side of the island, viewing St Molaise’s Cave, the Healing well and Tibetan Buddhist rock paintings, whilst taking in the beautiful natural environment as you go. This path leads ultimately to Pillar Rock lighthouse (the Northern Lighthouse Board’s first square lighthouse) at the south end of the island. More details on this walk can be found on the Holy Isle website.
Alternatively, you may wish to take the path to the highest point on the island, Mullach Mòr, where you can enjoy spectacular views across the Firth of Clyde.
- There are no facilities on Holy Isle so come prepared with your food and drink supplies and ensure you dress appropriately for the weather.
- In order to minimise disturbance to wildlife, we do not take dogs onto the island (with the exception of assistance dogs).
- We aim to be as inclusive as possible and wish to support everyone from all backgrounds and abilities to enjoy our cruises and crossings. We will provide active assistance to all passengers boarding our boats. However, please be aware that the boats are always accessed from the pier steps so, regrettably, direct wheelchair accessibility is not possible.
