One of the great things in Scotland is that we're spoiled for choice with so many different islands to explore, with a large number of them to be found on the west coast. 

From stunning scenery to beautiful beaches and plenty of options for food, drink, live music, festivals and amazing wildlife, our islands offer plenty of options whatever your interests are!

Check out this video to inspire you to visit the west coast islands! 

If you've already explored this part of the country tell us your memories and tales from your visit!

    I loved my trip on the CalMac ferry between Ullapool and Stornoway, on Lewis. We were blessed with some beautiful weather as we glided through tiny islands at sunset time. I had a tasty supper whilst watching the dolphins emerge from the water for moments at a time through the changing light.

  • Rabbit Islands!  A day out in your kayak to reach this group uninhabited islands from Talmine, scuba dive or hunt for the lost treasure of gold that was said to be the cargo of a ship, wrecked here en route to Bonnie Prince Charlie!
