Scottish Islands – April 2023

This month we are talking all about our lovely Scottish islands as the weather gets better, the days get longer and we start to dream a little bit more.

Hopefully you’ve been able to enjoy some time on at least one Scottish island and are as big a fan of them as we are.

There are so many islands in Scotland and it wasn’t until reading up on this that we realised how many there actually were. 790. Yes, 790 ( we checked but didn’t count them all ourselves ). Be they big, or small, or really tiny, they all have something to offer and we want to learn all about them from you. They are split into four categories namely Shetland, Orkney, the Inner Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides.

Money may not buy you happiness but it can buy you a Scottish island, which is pretty much the same thing is it not? We saw that one has gone on sale for £150,000 ( offers over you understand ). It looks nice and is in a lovely part of the country, so remember us when you get the deal done please!

Our guest hosts this month are @IslayandJura and @VisitSmallIsles who are real experts on this matter so have a look at the questions below and join us on Wednesday 26th 9-10pm. Thanks are also due to Lynsey @honeyp2 and Kerry @kerrydexter for your suggestions.
