More from Shetland

Here are a few of the views from around Sumburgh:

Sumburgh Hotel and Sumburgh Farm across the bay.

The bay at Sumburgh with the farm hotel and lighthouse

On our first full day we took a walk up to Sumburgh Head taking the road up and coming back along the coastal path. The Puffins up at the Head were amazing, so close you could reach out and touch them. Fulmar, Kittiwake, Shag, Guillemot, Razorbill, marauding Gulls and Skuas made up the rest of the cast for a spectacular show. And the backdrop was as spectacular as the bird life. More later....
