A Year for the Islands

Whether you are going to a popular destination with the public - like Staffa - or on a private trip to an island retreat, do remember that from Spring 2011 until Summer 2012  the designation Scotland's Islands refers to a year-long celebration of these special places. There are more than 95 inhabited islands to be reached by ferry, plane or bridge. They can be a world apart, but are close to home.

Staffa is the most magical island of them all. I took school parties to camp there in the 80s and it absolutely blew their minds. They're all about 40 now and it is what they remember of their school days when we meet in the street.
