Welcome to Island Blogging

Island Blogging is a community blogging site for residents of Scottish Islands. The concept was originally an initiative of the BBC but they have since discontinued the service and this site was born to allow Islanders to blog on!

Anyone resident on a Scottish Island can sign up for a free blog. Anyone anywhere in the world is welcome to read and comment.
