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.

Please forgive me for not being as able to visit and comment on your blogs as much as I would like. Internet out here is difficult to access.

Mousa Nature Reserve~


Mousa is an island and nature reserve in The Shetland Islands in Scotland. (Click to enlarge photos).

It is home to a variety of nesting birds, and the waters around the island are home to seals, porpoise and whales, including minke and orca.

The island is uninhabited,

and has the best preserved Iron Age Broch Guard tower in Scotland.

Mousa’s Broch is the tallest in Britain and is 2000 years old.

You can climb the tower’s eerie interior and take in the panoramic ocean views from the top.

The island is stark, unspoiled,

and beautiful.

Cheers to you from the stunning Shetland Islands~
