My Favourites


You could take a boat trip for a sea-level view of soaring cliffs, covered in nesting birds. Or walk to the hilltop on the Hermaness reserve for a view of Muckle Flugga - the tip of Scotland. Or catch the ferry to the further-flung islands, to see the cliffs of Foula for instance. Finding an adventure in Shetland is easy - it’s an adventurous kind of place!
