“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.”


Arisaig’s Midsummer Garden Open day . . . 

The Garden Open Weekend was such a lovely, enjoyable  event. The sun shone, the breeze blew, keeping those pesky midges well away, and many residents, and folk from further afield, enjoyed a delightful walk around a selection of the village’s lovely and varied gardens.

 Cream teas were served at the Land, Sea & Islands Centre, both outside and in, and were much enjoyed by all who sampled them. Thanks to all the Arisaig gardeners who welcomed visits from novice and experienced gardeners alike, and to all who helped make the day a lovely one to remember.

Here at the Arisaig Land, Sea & Islands Centre we have been experiencing a busy season, with plenty of visitors enjoying a look around the exhibition and the book and craft shop.

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. 

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
