Visit the Scottish Islands
Experience unspoilt beaches, towering mountains and a unique culture on a visit to the Scottish Islands. There are almost 800 islands around Scotland to explore – stretching from Arran in the south to Unst in the Shetland Isles to the north – and less than 100 are inhabited. You can find magic and mystery in equal measure on Scotland's islands, whether you stay on just one or choose to island-hop. Divided into four main groups – Shetland, Orkney, the Inner Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides (or the Western Isles), plus Arran and Bute – you’ll find each Scottish island to be completely different from the rest, but all with a slower pace of life that’s the perfect antidote to the everyday.
