About the local harbour

The island is around 7 km (4 mi) long and around 2 km (1 14 mi) wide, and is separated from the mainland by the Sound of Kerrera, about 500 m (14 mi) wide. The highest point on Kerrera is Carn Breugach at 189 m (620 ft). The island is linked to the mainland by two ferry services. There are tracks that lead to the scattered settlements in the centre and south of the island. The south end circular walking loop takes around 3 hours to walk. 

The island is known for the ruined Gylen Castle, a small tower house built in 1582. It was also the place where Alexander II of Scotland died in 1249.
