Right, so I am off and running. Got the travel books out of the library and am making lots of notes. Everywhere I turn, I am reminded of the Scottish islands and it seems this is where I could be headed this year. So, with that in mind, I am about to begin learning more about them, as I have never been to even one.
As I began to google the Islands, I came across this page http://www.scotlandsislands.com/. Apparently, this is the Year of Scotland’s Islands, celebrating all that’s great about Scotland’s islands. It involves and celebrates the people of all the 99 inhabited islands, from Arran and Cambray in the south to the Uists, Harris and Lewis in the west and on to Orkney and Shetland in the north. That is very exciting for me, as there are a number of festivals and events happening.
