St Ninian's Isle
photo by nz_willowherb

With an area of 374 square miles (970 km2), it is the third largest Scottish island and the fifth largest of the British Isles. Mainland Shetland is an incredible place with many things to do, from walking and cycling to windsurfing, fishing, bird-watching, scuba-diving, sailing or kayaking.

The stunning scenery abounds here and there are also many archaeological sites and the remarkable Iron Age village at Jarlshof, where you can see houses that are 1600 year-old.

A great place in Scotland, that you should definitely consider visiting.
