The Isle of Eigg

The island of Eigg has a long history of conflict, situated off the coast of Scotland it has always been vulnerable to attack. The natural resources found on this remote island are legend, the waters of Loch Nam Ban Mora once gave birth to women of unusual height and physical strength, the magical powers found in the "Singing Sands" near the Bay of Laig were used to build the mighty Viking ships and the cathedral caves below Mount Sgurr helped protect the island's faithful during the Jacobite rebellions.

Today, the inhabitants of Eigg face a different type of invader; a foreigner with his own vision for Eigg, willing to purchase the island and use the land as he sees fit. Regrettably, with his ownership comes much anxiety among the residents. Who will prevail in this clash between the haves and the have nots? Stay tuned!
