Passport Coming Soon

Despite 2020's best efforts to scupper everyone's plans, we have been working hard to develop the Scottish Islands Passport to help you discover more of our amazing islands when we're able to move about a little more freely.

This autumn we worked with partners Shetland to test the Scottish Islands Passport app. Thanks to everyone who took part.

The Passport

We think Scotland's islands are pretty amazing - from the stunning scenery and the local produce to the diverse culture and endless opportunities for adventure.

Our aim is to help more people enjoy more of Scotland’s islands throughout the year and, to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters, we’re developing an app and a commemorative passport to help you do just that. This website will keep you up to date on project progress.

As islanders ourselves, we know that it’s important to┬ápromote sustainable┬átourism that celebrates island life without adversely impacting local communities. We’ll be working with islanders from Unst all the way to Arran as we develop the project.

Work With Us

We are looking for talented photographers to provide images for the Scottish Islands Passport Project.

When lockdown passes and we can, once again, welcome visitors back to our shores, the Scottish Island Passport project aims to be primed and ready with an app, website and physical passport to help more visitors explore more of our islands for more of the year. And we’re looking for photographers who want to help us show off our islands at their best!

So we’re putting out an open call for photographers to submit their best shots of our islands to our photography pool. If your image is selected for use on the project we will pay you for non-exclusive rights to use your image for up to 2 years.
