The northernmost inhabited Islands in the UK. Famous for vikings, Fair Isle knitwear, puffins, beautiful scenery and awful weather.
The two images above were taken from one of the inter island ferries, which take people, vehicles and livestock between the islands.
St. Ninian’s Isle is connected to the main island by a sand tombolo which never gets completely covered, even at high tide.
On good days your choice of empty beaches awaits. The photo above is at the village of Hillswick.
In summer the seabirds are nesting and it’s usually possible to get fairly close.
