Although there are many Islands around the coasline of Scotland, the word usually refers to the Hebridean Islands that are a significant feature of the West coast of Scotland. However there is much cultural diversity between the Inner and Outer Hebridean Islands, Arran, Orkney and Shetland, many of whose inhabitants will descibe their identity in terms of their island rather than their Scottishness. Whether you are looking for ancient cultural attractions, peace and quiet, or just beautiful scenery, the Islands are really at the heart of what Scotland has to offer.
