Scottish Islands visited by sail boat

Welcome to my sailing trips to far flung Scottish Islands. Scotislands is not a tourist or reference guide but a glimpse of remote Scottish islands. Some islands summited, some not and some to return to with friends or going it alone.  Many are remote with landing only possible by yacht. These island wanderings are recorded with photographs of beaches, bracken, boulders, meadows and cairns. Each island has a story, images, videos and some chat around history and geology.
