Recorded September 2, 2008. Shetland is an archipelago in Scotland, off the northeast coast. The islands lie to the northeast of Orkney, 170 miles from the Faroe Islands and form part of the division between the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the North Sea to the east. The largest island, known as “Mainland,” has an area of 374 square miles, making it the third-largest Scottish island and the fifth-largest of the British Isles. My tour of the Shetland Islands continues is this video as we have left Scalloway and drive to the west coast of Mainland Shetland for a scenic view. Along the way we see sheep, cows, horses and shetland ponies. The video concludes as the tour ends back in Lerwick. From:

A record of an early morning walk up and along a newly laid footpath to the Old Man of Hoy stack. The wind on the cliff top was blowing in excess of 30 knots and i was on my hands and knees for most of the time in the vicinity of the stack!

Just a timelapse of an entire evening to morning showing our Simmer Dim or the lack of total darkness we have in the lovely light summers here in the Shetland Islands.

Things to do in the Orkney Islands, we took a tour of the Neolithic highlights (basically, the old stuff)
