Welcome to
the heart of Arisaig

Come and explore our heritage,
wildlife and visitor hub.


“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.”


This Saturday – Arisaig’s Midsummer Garden Open day . . . 

The weather seems set fair, so come on down to Arisaig and enjoy a walk around a selection of the village’s lovely and varied gardens, followed by a cream tea at the Arisaig Land, Sea & Islands Centre – all included in the price of your garden event ticket!

 Teas will be served outside if its fine, if not we will have a ‘pop up’ style tearoom inside the building. Teas will be served from 2:30pm.

Please note: if you are planning to visit the LSIC exhibition tomorrow you’ll be very welcome, but please be prepared for some disruption to the space while we serve teas!

Here at the Arisaig Land, Sea & Islands Centre we have been experiencing a busy start to the season, with some mixed weather, but plenty of sunny spells. Residents and visitors have been making the most of the long, light evenings, 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.

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.
