Although apparently not permanently inhabited in 2001 according to the 2011 census there was a single inhabitant at that time. It has a landing stage on the eastern shore and a building near the centre of the island. The crowded harbour at Crinan has so many moorings that "it is no longer possible to anchor to the south or east" of the island.
