British Isles - Many Islands

Author:  Robert W. Penry @2021

The total number of islands in the British Isles is many thousands.  Just choosing islands that are at least a ½ acre (0.2 hectares) in size, the Island of Great Britain has about 4,400 islands, of which about 210 are inhabited.  An additional 6,100 are islands only at low tide.  The Island of Ireland has about 850 islands, of which about 70 are inhabited and about 1000 only appear on low tide.  Some islands are only inhabited at certain seasons, for commercial fishing or for vacation homes. (Source Brian Adams, hydrographic officer, London)
Many of the small islands are under the jurisdiction of the adjacent counties on land.  Some are large enough to have their own local governments.
The British Isles is composed of two main islands, Britain and Ireland.  Too often people around the world, think that the British Isles is England.  It is not.  England is one country in the British Islands.  The confusion often comes because the top ruler is the King or Queen of England. who leads each of the countries in the United Kingdom of Britain, just as the United States has one top leader, the President who leads the 50 states of the nation.
To further the problem, not all countries in the British Isles are part of the United Kingdom.  The Queen of England is not the ruler of all of Ireland.  The Island of Ireland has two countries, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.  Only Northern Ireland or Ulster is part of the United Kingdom which is composed of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Additionally, here are thousands of smaller islands surrounding the two islands and also in lakes and rivers. This article will discuss the various divisions further.  Click for a list of islands of the British Isles.
Advice! If you are traveling to any country in the British Islands other than England, don’t call someone an Englishman.  Most will find this insulting, especially, the Welsh, the Scottish and most definitely a citizen of the Irish Republic.
