If you're looking to get off the beaten track in Scotland then these islands that are underrated and less visited should be on your list...

This small island off the coast of Mull is known for its connection to Christianity and the old Abbey ruins that lie on the island.    It's only reachable by ferry via the Isle of Mull..


Not that long ago the Isle of Rum was off limits to any tourists - nowadays it's welcomes people but the infrastructure means that very few people add it to their itineraries.


The Isle of Tiree has a designated Dark Sky area at Balevullin.  The island has no street lamps and is sparsely populated which makes it ideal for seeing the night sky


Shetland is the most northerly of Scotland's islands and often has far more in common with Scandinavia than its actual country!  


Located at the southern end of the Outer Hebrides is Barra.  The most exciting thing you can do is to arrive by plane because the airport runway is actually on the beach!


the Isle of Mull is one of the biggest islands on the west coast and easy to get to.   If you decide to go and explore it you'll find that it's got loads of remote areas to discover well away from any other tourists.
