GBP 6.99

The most northerly of Britain's island groups, Shetland is so far removed from the rest of the UK that it usually appears as an inset on maps. Although relatively little known to those from outside the islands, Shetland is a magnificent terrain for walkers, especially those who love to really explore and get away from the beaten track. The coastal walking here includes some of the finest in the country, with superb cliffs, towering sea stacks, caves and natural arches seemingly around every corner.

Description

Shetland

The most northerly of Britain’s island groups, Shetland is so far removed from the rest of the UK that it usually appears as an inset on maps. This archipelago of around 300 islands and skerries lies as far north as St Petersburg or Anchorage, and is almost 1000km north of London but only 643km south of the Arctic Circle. Although relatively little known to those from outside the islands, Shetland is a magnificent terrain for walkers, especially those who love to explore and get away from the beaten track. The coastal walking here includes some of the finest in the country, with superb cliffs, towering sea stacks, caves and natural arches seemingly around every corner.
