Britain's most remote inhabited island. We flew in this morning. It feels like we are walking into a painting. Think Norway meets Hawaiian islands and Father Time and Mother Nature have a field day.
Far Out Yet Still Close
Thanks to the popularity of the TV Series Shetland, we have had it on our radar as places to visit this year.
Of all the 115 islands in the archipelago, just a few- 15- are inhabited ones. We are at to Britain's most remote island, Fair Isle.
First, Sarah and I flew into Lerwick, Shetland's mainland via Edinburgh, Scotland. Next, we got a PCR test for Covid (Think Positive Test Negative).
Then, we followed-on to Fair Isle, population 55, now 57! What a place to self-isolate during the global pandemic!At first I thought Fair Isle was- the Faroe Islands (That's Danish and in the sub Arctic Circle). The Shetland Isles are located in the North Atlantic, Closer to Norway than to Aberdeen. Go Vikings!
