Get Out and About with a Ranger on Scotland's Islands!

  Rangers, some of whom are employed by The National Trust for Scotland, are offering a fantastic range of events this summer ~ there's something for all ages and a wide variety of interests. The events are designed to encourage us all to get out and about together and join in to learn more about our natural habitats and the wonderful array of wildlife which is right on our own doorsteps here on Scotland's islands. A number of the Ranger's events are listed on this website, including those below but if you are aware of any others, please submit the information to us so we can add it to the website. The list below is just a taste of what is on offer ~ please type the title into the 'What's On' keyword section for further information or search for events under the 'Categories' section:

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 -  

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.
