The Shetland Islands are the northern most islands of Scotland and the British Isles and lie at 60 degrees north, over 100 miles from the Scottish mainland. The islands have a wonderfully wild and varied coastline, superb wildlife, history, archaeology, fascinating geology and friendly people. The capital and largest settlement, Lerwick, is a thriving and cosmopolitan town.
I’ve only made one visit to the Shetland Islands so far, an excellent two week holiday in the summer of 2021, but all being well I’ll be back. It was a busy trip visiting a wide variety of places from Sumburgh Head in the far south, to Esha Ness in the west; Herma Ness in the far north of Unst; Mousa, Nibon, Fethaland and Ronas Hill in North Roe; boat trips around the islands of Bressay and Noss and more.
