Shetland September 2015

After the September visit to the Cairngorms, there was just enough time to fit in a few days on Shetland before heading back to other activities in southern England.

But it was just long enough to have a look around the harbours in Lerwick and Scalloway.

High Tide at Hays Docks
Caribbean Princess, slightly smaller than Bressey but more people
Gemini at Scalloway
Scalloway Castle

And to wander along a few beaches.

West Voe of Sumburgh
Meal Beach
Quendale Beach

And to explore a few cliffs and headlands.

Scat Ness
Horse Holm, off the southern tip of Scat Ness
Looking north from Windy Stacks, Fitful Head

And to chat with the local livestock.

Sheep at Tingwall
Sumburgh Cattle

And to get a quick glimpse of the Northern Lights.

From the kitchen window

Fab place Shetland.
