Not many options for independent travel: most people went with the ship, then walking tours (the tourist information had lots of information for that), and then local taxis charged 50 quid an ...

THE most beautiful place. Booked a private tour with Scenic Shetlands. Ruth is so knowledgeable and great company as well. Took us to all of the most scenic places, and it is all scenic. Clear blue and green water, white sand beaches, and cliffs full of sea birds. ...
