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.
Gorgeous ombrÃ© 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!
YOURS IN I HEART SHETLAND,

As we can see, it was a great birthday excursion, indeed. I hope you got a lot of inspiration and I’d love to read about it. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks for the lovely photos. I am really curious about the knitting sheaths.
Lovely sharing! Thank you! I adore puffins but I’ve never seen one IRL. Also: we have bog cotton in Nebraska! In the fens dotted around in the Sandhills! I think it’s called something else but it looks exactly the same. Thanks for the mini-vacation!
Absolutely idyllic- cf a hot noisy day with Barney Tobes Ferg and Sian for a steamtrain extravaganza on the watercress line- fab guest locos but challenging station waitsâ€¦
Looks absolutely idyllic xxx
gosh, so beautiful, and how delightful to share with your true love. can’t wait for further details. thanks.
