“Lovely wee exhibition and shop.”

You will find Scottish books, local crafts, excellent displays and a splendid view over Arisaig bay. We are family-friendly, with lots of hands-on exhibits and activities for children, and absorbing stories and objects for everyone else.

The collection is amazing and a pleasure to visit.”


Here at the Arisaig Land, Sea & Islands Centre we have been experiencing a busy start to the season, with residents and visitors making the most of the beautiful weather. The sunsets have been wonderful, and the sun has encouraged many wild flowers to bloom. This must be one of the best times of year to see this lovely corner of the Scottish Highlands.

Our current opening hours are Monday – Saturday  10:00 – 18:00, and on Sundays from 11:00 – 17:00.

WW1 Exhibition

Our fascinating temporary exhibition ‘Arisaig and the First World War’ will continue until the end of April. The exhibition focuses on the 99 people from Arisaig who served in WW One, and includes many wonderful photographs and other memorabilia. The Exhibition offers a moving insight into the contribution of a small Highland village to this major world event.

Wildlife Camera

A new and exciting addition to our website is the live camera  footage from a local heronry!  The footage can be viewed on your own devices, or watched while visiting the Centre.
