Welcome to my office!
Following on from the last post, I thought I would post an image that gives you an idea of why people come to see the area .
For a start the islands are National Parks with the exception of 3. Sitting smack bang in the middle of the 2nd largest Marine Park in the world,for the most part it is a natural wonderland. Of course there are resorts scattered around but out of 70+ islands only 7 have any form of habitation on them.
Being so close to the mainland makes the whole area very sheltered so marine tourism is pretty big here. You can do daytrips on yachts or high speed motor vessls. If you prefer to spend a bit more time here you can do a 3 day trip on something like “Solway Lass”. Lots of options!
After spending close to 15 years working here, people have asked me ” do you ever get bored?” I just look around and say ” Welcome to my office!”
