Things to do

Shetland is very fortunate to have unique wildlife such as the Shetland ponies, and the unspoilt often empty beaches, and breath taking scenery you will find throughout the isles including the featured Eshaness stacks. Made from the remnants of a volcano from over 350 million years ago, the large stacks and cracks provide a vivid, visual impact and are worth a trip during your stay here.
