View of St Ninian's Isle and Ayre Wins 'Walks' Photo Competition

by Alastair Hamilton -

One of the joys of living in Shetland is the wonderful range of walks that is available, as photographs from our summer competition confirm.

Shetland attracts people to visit or to settle for a host of reasons, but all of them would agree that the ability to walk amidst great scenery is one of the islands" greatest attractions. The Promote Shetland summer competition invited people to submit photographs of their favourite walk and write a few lines about it. The result was a collection of beautiful photographs and memories, well worth a browse. The winner was a stunning image of St Ninian's Isle and the ayre (a sand tombolo), taken by an Italian visitor, Marina Viti. She won a week's hire of a motorhome from Shetland Motorhome Hire. The favourite picture among followers of Promote Shetland's Facebook page was also a photo of the ayre at St Ninian's Isle, by Elizabeth Wark. She won a Shetland Fudge hamper.
