Flying to the Shetland Islands

Taking off north out of Edinburgh

Nice looking country house

Firth of Forth bridges

New bridge, old bridge and the train bridge

Into the clouds

A glimpse of either Fair Isle or the Orkneys

First glimpse of Shetland

Ready to land


We had retrieved our rental car and headed out onto the main road, only to be stopped by a plane taking off! They close the road which runs over the runway during landings and take offs.

Sheep everywhere

And lovely ocean vistas

Mussel farms in the sheltered bays

The two-lane road eventually became a single lane with passing places. We have rented a lovely croft way off the main road

Finally getting to our croft. Breathtaking rugged scenery

You do understand why one can get envious, right?
