The Bahamas After Hurricane Dorian – An Unfiltered Look Through the Lens of Instagram: Scotland Cay

Tagged: , , ,

After Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas, one of the islands I was often asked about was Scotland Cay. The questions weren’t coming because it’s a huge tourist destination. Most of the island, besides a small marina and airport, consists of privately owned residences. Due to this, information was hard to come by immediately after the storm – unless the property owners were sharing updates online, there were no resorts, restaurants or other businesses providing updates.

That continues to this day. Word from Scotland Cay is still hard to come by. The following posts from Instagram are all of the updates I’ve been able to locate on the social media site. Hopefully, they’ll provide some of you with the information you’ve been seeking.

Find more Hurricane Dorian updates on specific tourism/hospitality-related businesses and fundraising efforts. This article will be updated as often as possible.

  1. SCOTLAND CAY We saw this cay in passing but didn’t land here. We wouldn’t have been welcome on this rather stern-sounding island. It’s private. And exclusive. In case are you are making plans to drop by, this is how private and exclusive according to the island’s website: “Only property owners and their guests are allowed on the island. This exclusively private island is accessible by private aircraft, private vessel, or ferry service from nearby Marsh Harbour, Abaco. Please be advised that there are no commercial services on the island. No restaurants, bars, stores, public marinas, etc. Do not travel to the island unless you are a guest of a current property owner. You will be asked to leave immediately.” (S C website)
