Today's quiz question: a) what is the most unusually specific legislative requirement in the country, and b) why is it section 17 of the Islands (Scotland) Act 2018

It's a great Act from a special-cases perspective, to be honest. Not only does s.17 ensure that Shetland is not disrespected (though apparently you can box up Orkney or the Western Isles all you want), s.1(1)(a) has an urgent caveat to make sure they didn't accidentally omit Skye.
