Shetland in Winter


Shetland can be simply stunning in winter. We are 60 degrees north, and on the shortest day of the year there is less than six hours of daylight. This is a huge contrast to the almost never-ending days we have in the middle of summer. But the winter light, and the spectacular changes in weather, offer a truly rewarding experience. This video captures some of the winter beauty of these stunning isles.
