Lewis and Harris are named the best islands in Europe

Trip Adviser named the two islands the best in Europe after polls from the Websites’ visitors.  This is a great boost for the islands reputation and comes after a report showing the improvement over the last few years in visitor numbers.  Changes such as RET and the Sunday ferry restrictions beinf lifted have all helped, but the rest is down to the sheer beauty of the islands and its people.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-26247865
