About Us

Kirsten Gow and Sarah Compton-Bishop

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 which is why we have developed an app 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 promote sustainable tourism 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.
