    ... to return to the ferry terminal. My visit too Lerwick and the Shetland islands may have been brief, but it was extremely worthwhile.

    I came here to discover the culture and heritage (Norse) as well as to see the striking landscapes which these islands embody.

    ... whet your whistle for this wonderfully magic place.

    I even saw a pair of pheasants today on our tour. We visited the Gloup, meaning throat and observed the collapsed Sea Cave.

    We also viewed Copinsay Island and some wonderful sea stacks.

    St. Margarets Township was also on our tour and really is a lovely old town looking out to sea and the firth.

    Another exceptional ...
