Lewis and Harris take Trip Advisor choice spot

Scotland boasts four of the UK and Channel Isles top ten winning islands in the 2015 Travellers’ Choice awards for Islands, announced by travel site TripAdvisor.

The annual awards are based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers across the globe.

Winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions on islands worldwide, gathered over a 12 month period.

Scotland scooped the most awards in the UK and Channel Isles category this year, with Isle of Arran, Isle of Skye, Mainland Orkney and Lewis and Harris taking fourth, fifth, sixth and eighth place respectively.
