“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.”



Its going to be a busy weekend in Arisaig! Two local events are taking place, which should attract plenty of interest and participants. The annual Arisaig Village picnic, barbecue and football match will be happening on Saturday on the village playing field between 12 – 3pm, while elsewhere in the village, the 2nd Arisaig Americana Festival will be getting underway. There will be plenty of toe tapping sounds emanating from a variety of local venues! For more details about the picnic click here

Due to our involvement in this weekend’s Arisaig Americana Festival, access to the exhibition area of the Land, Sea & Islands Centre will be restricted on Saturday 25th May between 11:30 and 16:00. The craft shop will be open throughout this time, and you are very welcome to visit, and see what’s going on! (Click on our EVENTS page for more details).

We apologise for any inconvenience the limited access may cause.

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 mostly dry weather. The sunsets have been wonderful, and the warm 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 May. 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. See more about this on our Events page

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.
