Many of Scottish Tourers customers head over to the islands from the Mainland. Often these islands are less well known and many people don’t realise the hidden gems that can be found here. Shetland is in the Northern Isle of Scotland, located in the Northern Atlantic , between Great Britain and the Faroe Islands. It is known as the most Northerly point of Scotland. The capital of Shetland is Lerwick and has been since 1708. Within the Shetland isles there is the mainland and then 15 inhabited islands. Up on Shetland they have never forgotten their roots and they are very heavily influenced by the Scandinavian way of life, which is then mixed with the Scottish lifestyle. Festivals and music are an enormous part of the culture here and you wont have to travel far to find some excellent fiddle music in a local Inn.
Like the rest of the Scottish Isles, you really need to venture into the wild to appreciate what they have to offer. Don those walking boots and head out onto the 1697 miles of outstanding coastlines. Walking here will be like no other with the spectacular scenery, cliffs, lochs and of course the hills surrounding you. Any age of party will thoroughly enjoy a walk or cycle on Shetland, there are many animals, flowers and of course waters to explore. The Island now has UNESCO Global Geopark status and of course walking really lets you absorb the beauty that lies here. If it’s a shorter day walking your after pick a route such as Belmont to Lund which will take approximately 3 hours or if your after a real challenge try Deepdale and Sandness Hill which takes around 6 hours to complete. Ensure you are well equipped prior to setting off and of course pack plenty drinks, snacks and your camera.
