100 Events - 42 Islands

04 April 2011

Scotland's Islands is funding 100 events across 42 of the inhabited islands of Scotland.

We've managed to obtain funding from the six local authorities with island groups (Argyll & Bute, Highland, North Ayrshire, Orkney, Outer Hebrides and Shetland) together with Highland and Island Enterprise, Event Scotland, Awards for All and the European Regional Development Fund, enabling us to fund 100 projects throughout the year.

Even better, we currently have a list of more than 150 events and exhibitions to be staged across the islands and we'll publish lots of information about them as organisers finalise and let us know their plans.

Scotland’s Islands - the events, exhibitions and activities happening all year round.

We list every event we hear of, large and small, taking place on the islands of Scotland or taking place elsewhere and relating to Scotland's Islands. They provide a unique opportunity to savour the diversity and excitement of island life. Check our our facebook page for general updates too - http://www.facebook.com/ScotlandsIslands.  

There has never been a better time for you to visit Scotland's Islands, to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and unspoilt beaches, to get close to dramatic wild-life, learn about our heritage, participate in a great range of activities, and enjoy our music, food and drink.

All this on some of our 99 inhabited islands large and small (and many more uninhabited) accessible by sea and air in six regions: Argyll & Bute, Highland, North Ayrshire, Orkney, Outer Hebrides and Shetland.
