The Isle of Taransay

Wild, Pristine, Remote, and Majestic

Taransay sits on the Western Atlantic edge of Scotland and is Britain’s largest uninhabited island. It is a majestic domain of rolling mountains, golden beaches, pristine lochs and rugged coastline. Visitors will see that Mother Nature has a free hand on Taransay, which is home to a myriad of wild species, including golden and sea eagles, otter, red deer, seals, and an abundance of other marine and land wildlife.

The island is now the focus of a regeneration project that aims to restore the flora and fauna back to a pre-pastoral era as well as preserve the rich human and archaeological heritage of the island.
