Map of The Scottish Isles
Learn More about the Scottish Isles

The northern isles of Scotland are the Orkney Islands and the Shetland Islands, situated off Scotland's northeastern coast in the North Sea. There are plenty of things to see and do in the Orkney Islands, from exploring the St. Magnus Cathedral and learning about the isles' Viking heritage, to enjoying art and shopping for it. The Shetland Islands are halfway to Norway, and they are known for their breathtaking coastlines, towering cliff tops, pristine beaches, crystal-clear blue waters.

Scotland's western isles are the Hebrides chain, located off Scotland's western coast, just a short distance from Glasgow. A visit to the Isle of Lewis is like stepping into the pages of a Scottish fairy tale, boasting a rich, remarkable history. Outdoor activities reign supreme on the Isle of Skye, from rock climbing to pony trekking and bird watching. The Isle of Mull is full of many incredible experiences, such as visiting the charming town of Tobermory with its brightly colored houses. The Isle of Islay is probably best known for its peaty, smoky whiskies, arguably the best in the whole world.

Just a short drive from Glasgow or Ayr, you can visit the areas on and around the Firth of Clyde. The Firth of Clyde boasts waters that are the deepest found off the coast of Britain, with a depth of about 500 feet. On the western edge of the Firth of Clyde, you have the picturesque Kintyre Peninsula. On the eastern edge of the firth, you can walk or bike through the charming countryside of Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. Inside the firth itself are the Isles of Arran and Bute, known for its history, great landscapes, and lots of outdoor activities.
Cities in Scotland
Scotland and Beyond

There are over 900 islands in Scotland, and 89 of those islands are populated. The islands off the western coast of Scotland are known as the Hebrides. The Sea of the Hebrides separates the Outer Hebrides (such as the isles of Lewis and Harris) from the Inner Hebrides (isles such as Skye, Mull, Jura and Islay). To the southeast, there are many charming islands in the Firth of Clyde. The northern isles are situated off Scotland's northeastern coast and consist of the Shetland Islands and the Orkney Islands. While the Hebrides have a strong Scots Gaelic tradition, the Shetlands and Orkneys have similar enduring cultural traditions influenced by the Old Norse. These picturesque Scottish isles can be visited by car and/or ferry, and are sure to be the highlight of your Scottish vacation.
