    I feel like Meryl Streep from Sophie's choice. Many of these choices are unmissable places in Scotland for me so I have no idea how to pick a favourite.

    Orkney wins that vote every time for me, but then I am biased as I live here. Fair Isle/Shetland comes a close second though!

    Blimey! That's a real tough one! 
    I have just spent a week in Orkney and loved it but I voted for Shetland after my experience of Up Helly Aa at the start of the year. 
    I could probably vote for each set of islands on independent merits. Tough call...

    I keep mentioning I am from Dunfermline (I know, I know...) but I am half Shetland on my mum's side so I spent many happy summer holidays visiting relatives and cutting the peats for winter. Beautiful islands and beautiful people.

    I voted for the Outer Hebrides North.
    I left my heart in Lewis and Harris.
    However in October I went to Coll and I have to say that it is a little gem of an island. Loads of nature and beautiful beaches. Absolutely gorgeous! Highly recommended to nature lovers!

    I was born on the isle of Coll and although I left many years ago I still love it and still call it home. - We make sure we still visit the island every year.
