Shetland Guide Book

The purpose of this Guide is to help visitors appreciate Shetland and enjoy their time here to the full. The idea is that the reader can assimilate information without effort and yet rapidly find out what he or she would most like to see and do, depending on interest, season or weather. There are so many things to see and do that a lifetime is not long enough! Although the landscape is beautiful, history everywhere, and wildlife to rival anywhere on Earth, there is another aspect of the islands which is perhaps the most important and rewarding to get to know - the local people themselves. They are a friendly, hospitable people, proud of their past and at the same time go-ahead and industrious. Do not hesitate to ask the way, or about things - you are sure to get a courteous reply - and if you are lucky you might get a few good stories as well!
