We list every event we hear of, large and small, taking place on
the islands of Scotland or taking place elsewhere and relating to
Scotland's Islands. They provide a unique opportunity to savour the
diversity and excitement of island life. Check our our facebook
page for general updates too - http://www.facebook.com/ScotlandsIslands.
There has never been a better time for you to visit Scotland's
Islands, to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and unspoilt beaches, to
get close to dramatic wild-life, learn about our heritage,
participate in a great range of activities, and enjoy our music,
food and drink.
All this on some of our 99 inhabited islands large and small (and
many more uninhabited) accessible by sea and air in six regions:
