After spending five holidays in Shetland Jackie Darbyshire and husband Adrian jumped at the chance to relocate when she landed a job with The Shetland Times.
They made the move north with their then 10-month-old daughter Ella from the Isle of Man in May 2021.
They initially settled in Lerwick, where they enjoyed having everything they needed on their doorstep.
“It was so convenient,” Jackie said. “The shops, leisure centre, playgrounds, my work and a beautiful white sand beach were all within walking distance.
“And on Christmas Eve we enjoyed a great display of Northern Lights from our living room window!”
