My Personal Top 5 ways to spend da Simmer Dim
by Helen Smith -
Shetland is a magical place to be for midsummer. Here's my personal Top 5 ways to spend midsummer's night.
1. Climb Ronas Hill, the view from the top is astounding when you get there - well worth the effort.
2. Play golf at midnight! Shetland has 3 Golf Clubs; The Shetland Golf Club, The Asta Golf Club and the Whalsay Golf Club. You can also enjoy a game at the Knab in Lerwick, or head North to Unst, where there's an unofficial course in the sand dunes and links at Burrafirth.
4. Rent a camping böd. These were originally built to house fishermen and their gear, but now provide self catering accommodation.
5. Rent a lighthouse - okay, I haven't actually managed to do this yet - but after my trip to Sumburgh Head, I'm going to make a booking shortly!
Of course, there's a million other ways to spend midsummer in Shetland. What would be in your Top 5? Please let me know.
