Shetland is a stunning set of islands located to the far north of Scotland in the North Sea. These islands have a history stretching back thousands of years and you can discover more at historic sites, monuments and museums. The geology of the Shetland islands also stretches far back in time, but by billions of years. Discover rock formations, hills and a sand tombolo which have been created by shifting glaciers, the sea and the wind. While out exploring the landscapes, look out for wildlife which includes an exciting selection of marine life, seabirds and other mammals such as the Shetland ponies.
