About Portmuck

Portmuck was named after Muck Isle whose name was derived from the Irish Muc meaning pig, as the island is supposed to resemble a sleeping pig.

The bay of Portmuck has had its share of history as in its time it has been a revenue station, a coast guard station, an export harbour, the site of a fortress, a monastery and was well known for smuggling.

It is designated an area of special scientific interest.
