Small Isles

The Small Isles are a group of islands considered part of the British Isles. The islands are Rum[?], Eigg[?], Muck[?] and Canna[?]. The island of Soay, off Skye, is occasionally considered one of the Small Isles.

Note: Rum is not spelt Rhum. The spelling Rhum was coined by the former owner, Sir George Bullough, in the 1900s because he did not relish the idea of having the title "Laird of Rum"
