Shetland Islands

The Shetland Isles are the most northerly in the United Kingdom. Mainland is the largest of the islands with a further fifteen inhabited. Shetland is home to more than 5,000 archaeological sites which date from as early as early as 4300 BC. There is also much to interest lovers of flora and fauna with numerous seabird colonies with puffins, gannets and great skuas amongst many others. Shetland's natural landscape is among the most dramatic in the world with dramatic seascapes and miles of undulating wilderness. During winter you might see the 'Northern Lights'. Given Shetland's exposed maritime position weather can be challenging at times.
