National Nature Reserve Leaflet - Monach Isles NNR - Machair Marooned Offshore
The Monach Isles support some of the finest summer flower meadows in the Western Isles. Visit the islands in summer and you cannot fail to be impressed when the 'machair' comes into bloom and blankets them in flowers. The islands are also home to substantial numbers of seabirds and in autumn the sandy shores are crowded with grey seals that gather here to breed.
