Notice board

Closure of the Land, Sea and Islands Centre

Under normal circumstances we would be returning to seven days a week opening next week. Sadly, times are anything but normal, and after much thought, it has been decided that the Land, Sea & Islands Centre will close, with immediate effect.

We will be reviewing the situation week by week, and as soon as we think it is safe to do so, our door will be opened again.

This decision has not been made lightly, but having considered the well-being of our volunteer staff, local residents, and visitors, it was apparent that temporary closure would be the best and safest course to take.

Visitors to Arisaig are likely to be few over the next while, but for those who do come, we are sorry not to be open to welcome you to this beautiful part of the Scottish Highlands. All we can say is ‘haste ye back’ when the world has returned to normal.
