Scotland’s mark on America

I’d like to know about the language spoken and the actual current population of the small islands located off of Scotland. A few would be The Orkenys and the Shetlands, The Isle of Sky.

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland located in the Central Belt region of the country.
