“Just west of Mull in the Inner Hebrides lies little Erraid. It is connected by a land bridge to the bigger island at low tide so a wander around its shores between tides makes for the perfect day trip.

Erraid measures just 2.5km2 (one square mile) and it receives only 1,000 millimetres (40 inches) of rain and a whopping 1,350 hours of sunshine annually – making it one of the smallest, yet driest and sunniest islands on the western seaboard of Scotland.

The island is privately owned, and has been home to members of the Findhorn Foundation for more than 40 years, practising sustainable living attuned with nature.”
