Scotlandhour March 2018 – Scotland’s Islands
The blog on this month’s chat is brought to you by #scotlandhour team members Fiona Drane and Dougie Baird.
Did you know that Scotland has 790 islands? 95 of these are inhabited from the Shetland and Orkney Islands in the far North to the Inner and Outer Hebrides to the Islands of the Clyde.
A visit to a Scottish Island is a must at least once in a lifetime. But which island to visit? Do you island hop? Or are you an Island bagger, doing the island equivalent of Munro bagging?
Whether you are a well-seasoned island traveller, have fond memories of trips “doon the water” on the Waverley, or you’d like to learn more, the March ScotlandHour chat is for you. Join #Scotlandhour on Twitter to celebrate Scotland’s Islands from 9pm to 10pm on Wednesday 28 March.
We’re delighted to welcome guest hosts Outer Hebrides @OuterHebs, Caledonian MacBrayne @CalMacFerries and for #YOYP2018 blogger Katie McLeod @KatieMacL who hails from the Isle of Lewis and is now based in New York.
Remember to include #Scotlandhour in all your tweets and A1 in your question 1 etc. Question 5 refers to Year of the Young people, (#YOYP2018) so if you can manage an extra hashtag that would be great!
