Outdoor adventures in Shetland are easy to find, with so many natural attractions. At Sumburgh Head, RSPB offers family friendly experiences, particularly through the ‘Date With Nature’ and open days. Or why not to go out on one of the Shetland RSPB Wildlife Explorer Group’s days?
Taking the ferry to Mousa RSPB reserve is also quite an adventure and the Mousa Broch, the best preserved of its kind in the world, is well worth a visit. There are also many heritage centres around Shetland, which tell stories of Shetland’s past through interesting displays and artefacts.
There are so many rockpools, spectacular beaches and burns to be discovered with kids. One of the most attractive beaches in Shetland is St Ninian’s – a sand tombolo which joins St Ninian’s Isle to the mainland and it is brilliant for walks, barbeques, paddling and building sandcastles.
