Muck only has a tiny population - many of whom have journeyed far in search of a quieter way of life - and measures a mere two miles in length. Its only road links the main harbour at Port Mor with a farmstead at Gallanach. Idyllic and remote, it is noted for its wildlife – including seals and porpoises – and depends on ferries from the mainland for its provisions, although it has a modern school. Pupils over 12 years of age have to continue their education as boarders on the mainland. Electricity comes from wind power.
