Autumn is an ideal time to experience the stunning landscapes and dramatic coastlines of Shetland and truly get away from it all.
If you’re feeling adventurous it’s even worth heading to the coast after one of the autumn storms which can roll in off the Atlantic Ocean. You may need to wrap up and wear a windproof jacket, but it’s worth the effort to witness impressive waves, and marvel at the power of nature.
Feeling the spray of seawater on your face as you walk along dramatic clifftops is undeniably a life-affirming experience. Contrast that with the serenity that comes on a flat calm day. Why not head to one of the beautiful beaches, where you quiet possibly could be the only person there?
