    To access the remote Shetland Isles, which are located far to the north of Scotland, clients have two options for traveling there:

    Option 1 – Fly to Sumburgh Airport on Shetland. Direct flights are available from London, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness. The busiest route is from Aberdeen, which has several flights each day. For flight details, see www.britishairways.com Please fly in at least a day in advance of day 1 of the trip.
