Longa Island (Gaelic: Longa) is a small uninhabited island at the mouth of Loch Gairloch, on the west coast of Scotland.


The island is mainly sandstone covered with grass and heather.[4]


There was a small fishing community in early in the 19th century; the island had become deserted by the latter part.
