Shetland in pictures

We are back from a short break in Shetland; this was a special trip, as it was Mark’s first time in Shetland and a holiday for my birthday.
I thought you might like to see some photos!

Puffins at Sumburgh Head.

The rocks around St. Ninian’s Isle.

Sheep buddies!

Seal buddy.

Gorgeous ombré sand.

A Fulmar? Or a kind of gull? Defending its nest.

A Bonxie at Hermaness.

Gannet colonies, rocks, stacks, and the most Northerly point in the UK: Muckle Flugga!

Puffin buddy at Hermaness!

Fair Isle at Whalsay – more on that in another post, but for now I just wanted to show you some glimpses of the extraordinary work of the knitters of Whalsay.

Lichens, sea-pinks (Thrift) and Bog-Cotton seen up and around Eshaness.

Da Drongs, spotted from Braewick beach.

Knitting Sheaths at the Shetland Museum and Archives – also to be shared more in a further post!

The impossibly pink sunset on our last night.

Mark enjoying the coastal views and the beautiful buttercups and sea pinks.

Thank you Shetland, we had such a lovely time and will be back very soon!
