Holy Isle is on the Firth of Clyde within Lamlash Bay on the larger island of Arran. The island is approx. 1.9 miles (3km) long and around half a mile (1km) wide.
As the name suggests the island has a long history as a sacred site, with a spring or Holy well thought to have healing properties, a hermit cave of 6th Century monk Saint Molaise that has runic writing of the roof, and evidence of a 13th Century monastery.
The island today is owned by the Samyé Ling Buddhist Community with just a couple of settlements. The rest of the island is treated as a nature reserve with wild Eriskay ponies, Saanen goat and Soay sheep. The rare Rock Whitebeam tree can be found on the Holy island.
There is a regular ferry service from Lamlash on the Isle of Arran.
