The Eigg is an Island Class ferry that is currently owned and operated by the Scottish ferry company Caledonian MacBrayne. She was built in 1974 by James Lamont & Co in Glasgow for the company where she was placed on the Raasay-Portree route. In 1976, she became the Lishmore ferry, linking Oban with Lishmore. She ran on this route for twenty years before briefly becoming the Kilchoan ferry in 1996. In 1999, she was reinstated as the Lihmore ferry and this is where she remains today.

The other six were sold off to different companies. They are the Bruernish, the Coll, the Canna, the Rhum, the Kilbrannan and the Morvern. The Eigg can accommodate 75 passengers and can carry 6 cars.
