Foula is one of the most remote inhabited islands in the British Isles and lies 20 miles west of Mainland Shetland.

    Foula has some of Britain's highest cliffs, reaching 1220 ft above sea level. The name Foula comes from the Old Norse for ‘bird island’. Inhabited since Neolithic times, the island is rich in historical significance and the community has a strong Norse tradition of folklore and music. There are great opportunities for birdwatching on Foula and the chance to join guided walks.
