What’s on The Isles of Shetland

Of the other inhabited Shetland islands, Yell, Unst, Fetlar, Bressay, Whalsay and Burra are the largest. With their cliffs, caves, sea stacks, sandy bays and wild flowers, the Shetland Isles are a haven for birds and other wildlife. Dramatic, unusual landforms and evidence of old civilisations abound here. So there’s plenty for you to photograph and explore on days out. Given their spectacular scenery, environment and heritage, there’s little wonder that the Shetland Isles keep so many visitors coming back for more each year.
