‘Scotland’s five most beautiful islands’…
Well, goodness me, there’s a question!
Trying to answer that is a bit like giving a wee boy the keys to the sweetie shop and telling him he can only pick five jars. There are 790 of them, of which 94 are recorded as being inhabited, and many more that have a history of habitation in days gone by.
The Scottish islands have something for everyone, for every mood, and for every activity.
Fall in love with the sweeping white sand beaches and flowering machair of the Outer Hebrides. Marvel at the rock architecture of Papa Stour. Take in the raw grandeur of the Cuillin of Skye.
Immerse yourself in the history that peppers the Orkney archipelago. Whether you’re a hardened adventurer, wildlife watcher or beachcomber, you won’t be disappointed! I hope to give you just a very small flavour of the joys to be discovered with Scotland’s 5 most beautiful islands: just hop on a ferry or jump on a plane, and let the adventure unfold.
