Shetland link header

For further information, click on the links below.

Links relevant to Beach House and Sandwick are on those pages (such as for the Mousa Boat). While these links here should be current and useful, we do not endorse any of them. In some cases there seems to be a variety of overlapping bodies where it is not clear who does what, so you will have to find your own way around these. It seems that if anybody is doing anything in Shetland they set up a website. If you can't find what you are looking for, search on "Shetland" plus "the-word-of-interest" and you will probably find someone is doing it there. It's never dull.
