About the Shetland Islands
Shetland, an intriguing scatter of uniquely individual islands from Muckle Flugga to Sumburgh Head, lies at the northermost tip of the United Kingdom.
It is a land of spectacular views and outstanding archaeological monuments - the brochs and prehistoric villages are among the most significant in Europe - where mysterious standing stones dot the landscape, and medieval castles at Scalloway and Muness testify to Shetland's historic importance and ancient links to Scandinavia.
The discovery of oil in the North Sea has brought wealth, technology and improved communications and infrastructure to the home of the famous miniature ponies, and today over 50,000 discerning visitors are lured to the islands each year.
As well as those in search of peace and solitude, the pristine natural environment and unusual land formations also entice bird watchers and students of geology.
From wild isolation on the remoter islands to the friendly, bustling warmth of the attractive main town of Lerwick, Shetland holds a seductive fascination which will draw you back again and again.
