Shetland is the most northerly point of British soil; sitting in the middle of a triangle between Norway, the Faroe Islands and Scotland. Fortunately getting to and around these remarkable islands is simple – and when it comes to hopping between the isles on a ferry or via a 15-minute plane ride, the journey is often just as memorable as the destination.
