Shetland offers an excellent choice of outdoor activities in unforgettable settings, from midnight rounds of golf to exhilarating kayaking off the spectacular coast.
The Shetland Isles offer the winning combination of world-class facilities and spectacular scenery across a diverse landscape and 1,000 miles of unspoilt coastline.
Tee off at one of the islands’ challenging golf courses including Whalsay Golf Club, Britain’s most northerly course, where seals and porpoises can be seen swimming offshore from the greens.
One of the best ways to explore the crystal-clear waters around Shetland’s shores is in a kayak. Paddle into secluded coves and concealed sea caves and get up close to indigenous wildlife including otters and even whales.
Shetland is also hugely popular with keen anglers, attracted by relatively cheap and largely unrestricted fishing. Fishermen are spoilt for choice with cod, halibut, ling mackerel and Shetland’s legendary sea trout, fishermen. You can also cast your line for wild brown trout in more than 300 freshwater lochs found throughout the islands.
Back on dry land, why not take advantage of the quiet roads and experience Shetland’s endlessly changing scenery on two wheels? Cycle more than 1,000 miles of well-maintained roads, tracks and off-road trails, pausing to absorb awe-inspiring views and chat to friendly locals.
