Shetland has a huge range of fascinating ‘faces’ to offer you and caters for many interests.
Just learning how an island community with a history going back thousands of years has survived and flourishes on these islands is a fascination in itself.
Dramatic seascapes, birds and marine wildlife, archaeology, fiddle music, ponies, knitwear and the ‘Up Helly Aa Fire festival’ are some of the immediate associations that people make when they think of Shetland – but there is so much more.Local Information

“We have enjoyed our stay at Fairview so much. It’s hard to think of a more comfortable or relaxing place to be. Spectacular Shetland has blown us away. We were lucky to see puffins, seals, lambs and pony foals! We hope to be back.”
John & Linda McNeill, Glasgow
“Lovely house in picturesque location yet very handy for Tesco! The house has everything we needed and we also enjoyed the garden where the daffodils have given us cheery spring colour. Despite forecast, we have had very sunny weather and a lovely time.
