Welcome to Eigg

It takes its name from the Old Norse egg (meaning 'edge'), a reference to the Sgurr of Eigg (393m), an impressive mini-mountain that towers over Galmisdale, the main settlement. Ringed by vertical cliffs on three sides, it's composed of pitchstone lava with columnar jointing similar to that seen on the Isle of Staffa and at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland.
