10 reasons to visit Shetland - A family Holiday

by Misa Hay -

An unforgettable holiday for the whole family

A family holiday in Shetland offers a daily adventure, a go-slow holiday where you can sit on a pristine golden beach and watch harbour porpoise play, build sandcastles, and go rockpooling. Relax. Where on rainy days you can escape to leisure centres, fascinating museums and a state of the art cinema. Where expeditions can be planned with friendly local guides and you can follow in the footsteps of the Vikings and unearth hidden treasures. Where the Nature Festival will inspire and where you can visit a working croft and feed native animals. Where evenings are spent cosied up in a wooden wigwam or watching luminous Northern Lights from a fairytale lighthouse. Where mornings begin with the song of the curlew and the afternoon is spent on the high seas exploring a secret underwater kingdom and a Giant's Leg! Where there's space to play, where imaginations can run wild...A warm Shetland welcome awaits, whatever your age, and many magical memories too.
