Extra titelinformatie

Guidebook to 15 of the best short walks on the Shetland Islands. Each walk comes with easy-to-read Ordnance Survey maps, clear route description and lots of images, plus information on beauty spots and refreshment stops. No challenging terrain or complicated navigation means walks can be enjoyed by everyone.

Most people visit between spring and mid-summer, as that is when the seabirds can be seen. The coastal scenery is particularly spectacular during winter storms, and January is when the great fire festival, Up Helly-Aa, takes place.

The walks in this book are mostly easy to follow on good paths, but there are sections which are pathless, and occasionally boggy, especially after rain. None of the clifftop walks have fences or barriers so care is needed.

Must See
The ancient settlement at Jarlshof; puffins and other seabirds galore at Hermaness and Sumburgh; spectacular seacliffs on most walks; the beautiful sand tombolo to St Ninian's Isle; scores of remote islands to explore
