Shetland Islands – June 2012 and 2013
At 60 degrees north lies an archipelago of over a hundred islands that make up the Shetlands, of which only 15 are inhabited. Located 110 miles north-east of the mainland of Scotland, the Shetland Islands are closer to the Arctic Cycle than to London.
Access to the Shetland mainland is via air or ferry. We travelled via the overnight ferry, which departed from Aberdeen, as we had some heavy photographic luggage to take with us.
