If you have never walked in Shetland before, using a guide is a great way to enjoy a safe introduction to walks which suit your ability. Guided walks are led by highly qualified and knowledgeable guides, who have an in-depth knowledge of the landscape, weather and points of interest which add so much to a walk. Using a guide is also a good way to gain new skills or update existing ones and packages are carefully put together by experienced professionals who thoroughly research all components of the holiday/break. Operators also provide continuity of care from the point of information to heading home after your walking adventure.
