The  app allows you to choose areas that interest you from categories such as history and heritage; food and drink; outdoor activities; nature; and arts and music, and then uses these to recommend islands to visits and activities you might enjoy there.

Once you have chosen your next island destination it provides you with practical advice and links to local information, as well as letting you collect passport ‘stamps’ – designed by local artists’ for each island you visit.

Download the app now from

There is also an open call for photographers to submit their best shots of our islands to the photography pool. If your image is selected for use on the project you will be paid for the non-exclusive rights to use your image for up to 2 years.
