Located immediately to the north of the island of Scarba and west of Luing in Argyll and Bute, Lunga is a relatively barren island dominated by the peak of Bidein na h-Iolaire (80m / 262 feet) which is centrally located. To the north of the island are a group of tidal islands the largest being Rubha Fiola to the extreme north. The island's small population was located on the eastern side where the land is more easily manageable while the rest of the island is covered in rocks and bog. The island is privately-owned and has been home to an adventure centre for children since 1976. Uninhabited in 1961 and 1971, the population was recorded as 3 (1981), 2 (1991), 7 (2001) but again supported no permanent residents in 2011. The island has an area of 254 ha (628 acres).
