Welcome to Northern Islands

Accessible by reasonably priced ferry or plane, the islands are well worth exploring. Though you can see 'the sights' in a matter of hours, the key is to stay a day or two and relax into the pace of island life.

Note that the ‘ay’ at the end of island names (from the Old Norse for ‘island’) is pronounced closer to ‘ee’.
