Shetland is such a beautiful island! If you ever get the chance to go there you should grab it with both hands. The idea to visit the festival of Up Helly Aa simmered for two years until I found someone who didn’t think it was crazy to fly there at the end of January.
And what a great idea it was! During these five days we drove up and down the island and tried to cram as much as possible into the daylight hours. And it was so worth it! The island beguiles with its rough edges and the charm of the locals. Please enjoy these pictures with me. A big thank you to X for sharing his pictures! Yours, Pollybert
