The Land Sea and Island Centre
Arisaig · Inverness-shire
The Land, Sea and Islands Visitor Centre was created out of the derelict smiddy building, and occupies a stunning location in the heart of Arisaig village.
The Centre houses fascinating, hands-on displays of local social and natural history, which cover a variety of subjects, including crofting and fishing, and the wartime history involving the Special Operations Executive (SOE), which carried out secret paramilitary training in the area. There is a reference room with a wonderful view, and plenty to occupy children. The well-stocked craft and bookshop carries some lovely, locally made items, and also sells seasonal local produce. In addition to interpreting Arisaig's past, this community-owned facility provides an extremely useful up to date information service to visitors, helping them make the most of their time spent in and around Arisaig. The building was completely refurbished in 2015. Admission is free. See the LSIC website for more information and for opening times. Telephone 01687 450771.
