Spiggie Beach and Loch Shetland #shettrip
photo by Karen Bryan

This archipelago in Scotland is composed of over one hundred islands, of which fifteen are inhabited. Shetland is located more than 100 miles North of the Scottish Mainland. Today, the local economy is very dependent on the fishing industry and public services.

Shetland is home to a number of unique domesticated animals, including the Shetland Ponies. It is also a good place for bird watching, fishing, sailing, canoeing or just exploring one of the most remote islands in Britain.
