The National Islands Plan takes another step forward this month with a consultation on Gigha.

Tuesday May 21 will see a Scottish Government Islands team visit the community-owned Gigha to stage the consultation.

The Scottish Government Islands team will carry out consultation events in relation to the development of the National Islands Plan.

The following days will see similar events on Arran, Cumbrae and Bute.

The Islands (Scotland) Act 2018 was granted Royal Assent in July 2018 and  introduces a number of measures to underpin a Scottish Government objective to meet the needs of island communities now and in the future.

All islanders are asked to get involved in this exciting opportunity to shape future policy and strategy.

There is also an online consultation at, where you should search for the National Islands Plan,  or email or a hard copy of the consultation document.
