The fog silently rolled in overnight, and early risers awoke to a quiet and very still morning. As we set off on our bus tours and ventured the length and breadth of these stunning Islands, the Shetlands became increasingly ethereal in appearance.

At the southernmost end of Shetland, we visited Sumburgh Head and its fabulous cliffs of seabirds, owned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Here we got super close to puffins, the stars of the show. Later in the morning, we headed to Jarlshof, a prehistoric and Norse settlement to discover 4,000 years of Shetland’s history.
