Croig

 

A small fishing harbor and hamlet on the

 

A very picturesque sheltered harbor on East coast of the Langamull headland reached from the Dervaig to Calgary road (B8073).

 

A working fishing port with a stone pier and slipway, on clear days there is a superb view of the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse across the water. The village overlooks Ugag Bay, followed by Laimhrig bheag (Little Harbour) then Laimhrig mhor (Big Harbour).

 

Parking at the harbor is very limited (two or three cars at most) and the road to the harbor is quite narrow with no passing places. Turning at the end of this road can be difficult and is certainly not recommended for large vehicles and Campers. There is parking is available uphill from the harbor.

 

Please note that there are no Public Conveniences or refreshments available at Croig.

 

There are very good walks along the coast from Croig bot to the north-west and around the Eilean Nan Each peninsular which can be reached from the road at the south end of the loch.

 

Croig is a lovely place with Herons and occasionally Otters to be seen inshore.
