This is a common question and one that doesn’t have an easy answer! In a nutshell, Shetland is a friendly place to live with inclusive and welcoming local communities and a thriving economy. We offer a safe and welcoming haven for people from all walks of life.
Rather than us reel off all the reasons we love Shetland – as you know we’ll be a little biased – check out the experiences of some of our islanders in our Why Shetland? area of the website.
