+1. I also tried Inner and Outer Hebrides, but figured they were chains of some type with individual islands whose names I do not know. Anyway, it was a learning moment.

Got them all (I'm a bit of a geek) - surprised Benbecula wasn't on there though. I always thought it was bigger than Rum. Clearly not...

Two issues: - the areas you quote are hectares not sq. km (out by a factor of 100) - the island labelled as Orkney is in fact called Mainland; Orkney refers to the entire island group, that includes Hoy in your list.

The above is correct, what you've highlighted is 'Mainland', Orkney is the whole group of islands together. It's the same as accepting Outer Hebrides for Lewis and Harris.
