A network of tunnels which would connect the Scottish islands is being “seriously thought about”, according to one UK member of parliament.

After a recent fact-finding trip to the Faroe Islands, Conservative minister Iain Stewart says this new way to connect the islands was “worth exploring”. He thinks talks should begin in the Orkney and Shetland archipelagos soon, due to the timescale of these ambitious projects.

Meeting with officials in the Faroes, Stewart says that their efforts show “it can be done”.

But the project would not be cheap, with the Faroe Island scheme having cost up to €23.5 million per kilometre of tunnel.
