School Holidays

by Helen Smith -

There’s plenty to keep little ones entertained over the Easter break. You can look for treasure on St Ninian’s Isle. There’s a geocache hidden on the isle and there’s also a Facebook appeal at the moment from a man who lost his wedding ring. It would be wonderful if by some miracle it was found and returned to its rightful owner.

Why not explore Scalloway Castle, romp over the hills, explore rock pools or hold your own Easter egg hunt at Clickimin Broch? Sumburgh Head is another good option and they have activity packs you can download to keep everyone amused... more on Sumburgh Head later.

If the weather’s poor, or you’re simply tired from all the fresh air there’s always a good selection of films to keep young and old entertained at Mareel. The Shetland Museum and Archives has a good selection of workshops for bairns and there’s a good selection activities at the leisure centres and swimming pools around Shetland.
