Looking down to the sea you see dolphins, mink and humpback whales, grey seals and porpoises. Passing through varying small settlements in the South of the Islands with a photo stop to observe Mousa – the best-preserved broch (ancient dwelling potentially defensive) in existence.

A short scenic tour of Lerwick the capital of Shetland and most northerly town in the British Isles, with strong connections to our Norse heritage and built on by the fishing industry - Lerwick began to rise in the 1600’s and gradually took over from the ancient capital of Scalloway.
