What’s on Shetland

Shetland is as far north as you can go in Scotland – but definitely worth the trip. With over 100 or so islands, just 15 of them inhabited, Shetland is a gloriously remote setting for wildlife enthusiasts, those looking for artistic or spiritual inspiration, and anyone seeking the ultimate, get-away-from-it-all destination. Shetland is famous for its sturdy little ponies, hand-knitted woollen sweaters, colonies of seabirds and seals, and amazing sea fishing. It has three National Nature Reserves, four RSPB reserves and 78 Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, Shetland has a surprisingly mild climate for somewhere that is closer to Norway than to mainland Scotland. For great days out and a friendly welcome, Shetland is the place for you.
