Last Chance to See the Lewis Chessmen!

Over 21,000 visitors have seen the Lewis Chessmen: Unmasked Exhibition at Museum nan Eilean in Stornoway - have you?!

This is the last week of the exhibition so you still have time to see and learn more about these iconic figures.   

It will be sad to see them go but they are planning a day of celebration at Museum nan Eilean for their last day - Monday 12th September - so for any visitors who pop in on the last day there will be music and storytelling throughout the day from 10am to 5pm. Everyone is welcome!  


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.
