Lerwick~


Lerwick is located 123 miles off the coast of Scotland,

and is the most northerly town in the UK.

It is the main town in The Shetland Islands,

and 7000 souls call Lerwick home.

Evidence of human settlement here dates back 3000 years!

Lerwick is a natural treasure,

with abundant sea life and birds.

Cheers to you from the remote and beautiful Shetland Islands~ (Coromrants)

  1. Bonjour ou bonsoir mon ami ou amie CINDY

    Le soleil , le ciel ,la mer nous offre tant de beauté en été
    ELLE La nature nous offre sa beauté avec ses quatre saisons
    on ne peut que l’admirer

    La vie est un très long chemin
    on ne peut suivre que son destin
    Il faut le poursuivre en toute sagesse

    Avoir des amis et amies est un beau partage
    on en récolte que les avantages
    Vers toi avec une pensée, je viens te souhaiter
    une merveilleuse journée ou soirée
    Bisous , Bernard

  2. So did you meet Douglas Henshall? Okay, just kidding. When I visited Scotland many years ago I noticed how the colors changed from the many shades of green in England to the purples and browns of Scotland. Beautiful country.

  3. A wonderful skyline. Sad only the bad internet connection.All the places which are possible to emmigrate are with bad internet connection. Seems someone needs to think on satellite internet first. 😉 Michael

  4. Hi Cindy– love your travel photos!! And Lerwick looks so charming with it’s colorful buildings spilling down the hillside! Would love to be able to walk into your photos! thanks! xxoo

  5. I love the colors of their houses and buildings with the lush green, and cloudy sky. It really makes those colors pop.
    The Gannet was a treat! I’ve only seen one and that was from very far away while on a birding excursion out to the Farallon Islands outside of San Francisco. Apparently that birds shouldn’t be here at all, but it was that year.

  6. I had to revisit this post because several days ago, I started watching the detective show, Shetland, on Netflix. I heard about this town in the show. I think, more than the drama itself, it is the rugged beauty of the islands that attract me to it. The charm of the Scottish accent is a plus, too.

    IN fact, this place also brings to mind that other show which I think is set in Wales, Hinterland.
    What beautiful places they are.

    • I need to check out both. The Shetlands are absolutely stunning and so are The Hebrides. I, like you, often enjoy the cinematography of amazing places in movies, more the the movie itself!

  7. I often don’t appreciate the clutter of humans, power lines, tons of homes, ships and the like, but sometimes it can be beautiful. You really captured that beauty in the photos of Lerwick!
