Island-hopping online

With most shops and small businesses closed down, it seems there are only two options available to most traders. One is to take advantage of whatever help is on offer from the government, batten down the hatches and hope that the virus disappears before cash reserves do. The other is to find alternative ways of trading.¬† As island-based businesses are particularly vulnerable with so many dependent on tourism, an ingenious portal has been launched that allows the casual shopper to island-hop at will and browse away to their heart’s content.

Support the Scottish islands during Covid-19 by shopping from the comfort of your sofa!
