When we told friends and family we were going to be visiting Shetland, they responded with the appropriate “oh wow” and “that is our bucket list destination”. But this was swiftly followed by, “you’re visiting in winter?”
Well, we did. And we would encourage others to visit at this time of year too. What’s more, we travelled with three young children in tow. Now we are home I can confidently report that we had a blast.
We experienced all the seasons within five days, learnt about the history of the most northern part of the UK and encountered a real adventure in the True North.
