Blimey, we got a mention in the Guardian yesterday (overseas people: the Guardian is a left-leaning broadsheet UK-wide newspaper). And not just any old article, but in the daily editorial/leader column.
Under the title "In praise of ... Scottish islands", it's a short but positive piece about the benefits of this part of the world. It concludes with:
...No island can be singled out as the best: but Berneray, near North Uist, with its white-sand beach and simple thatched hostel by the sea, surely cannot be beaten as a place to sample island life.
So there. The article is online.
