Urras Leabhraichean nan Eilean (IBT)

The Islands Book Trust (Urras Leabhraichean nan Eilean) was formed in 2002 with two main aims:

  • To further understanding of the history of the Scottish islands in their wider Celtic and Nordic context.
  • To generate economic, social and cultural benefits for local communities in the islands. 

We have been promoting these aims by organising talks and conferences, arranging visits to islands and other remote areas, publishing books and other material about Scottish islands and encouraging education and research about the Scottish islands.
