Outer Hebrides

Garbh Eilean

The islands were inhabited until the late 18th century, when changes in land ownership and society made the old way of life no longer viable. The previously inhabited and cultivated areas of Airighean a’Baigh and Airighean na h-Annaid are unusually fertile land. Feannagan may still be made out in these areas.

Adam Nicolson, father of the present owner of the Shiants, published a book about them in 2001 under the title of Sea Room ‘to tell the whole story’.
