A world where wildlife is truly wild, where otters and seals play in quiet coves, and the air is full of the sound of wild birds, crowding the jagged cliffs in huge and noisy colonies.
Being in Shetland is unlike being anywhere else, a fact that's evident from our unique culture, our dialect, our heritage, even our place names.
Our beautiful and dramatic ice carved landscape is steeped in treasures of history that go back over 6,000 years.
VisitShetland is fundamentally a destination marketing organisation. It exists primarily to attract visitors, enhance their experience and incease value of tourism to Shetland's economy.
