Quoting vfw614 (Reply 4): or is an Islander based there for air ambulance purposes?
As far as I know Loganair only have Twin Otters and Saabs at their Glasgow base. I doubt they would retrain him to fly Saab 340s (neither do I think he would have an interest in such a drastic change). However the video does say he will be flying to the Inner Hebrides which are often Twin Otter flights and the Twin Otter is not altogether different from the Islander so possibly he's to become a Twin Otter pilot.

Nice to see that there are still people who enjoy their aviation.
... and aviation is not only about flying big irons across oceans... bush pilots and flying doctors are my brothers, too.
It is also a lesson that there must be a sense, aq meaning to life : Being useful and helping others are qualities quietly disappearing.

Flight attendant: (interrupting) In preparation for landing make sure all tray tables and seats are in their upright and locked position, well never mind, we would like to welcome you to Papa Westray where the local time is.....
In the time it took you to read this the flight would be over!
