Orkneys And Shetlands Campsites and Camping

Information
Shetland is a subarctic archipelago of Scotland that lies north-east of mainland Britain. The largest island, known simply as "Mainland", has an area of 967 km2, making it the third-largest Scottish island and the fifth-largest of the British Isles.

The local way of life reflects the joint Norse and Scottish heritage including the Up Helly Aa fire festival, and a strong musical tradition, especially the traditional fiddle style.

Shetland has an oceanic climate, with long but mild winters and short, cool summers. The climate all year round is moderate due to the influence of the surrounding seas.

Things to do
Shetland's complex history can be seen across all its islands, home to more than 6,000 archaeological sites, from the ancient settlement of Jarlshof to the amazingly preserved prehistoric Mousa Broch and the crumbling ruin of Muness Castle.

Visit Shetland's nature reserves to see an array of fascinating creatures. From Shetland ponies grazing on hillsides to otters swimming in coastal waters and colonies of seabirds, these are just some of the incredible wildlife experiences to be had in Shetland.

The cycle routes here are designed to help you explore the most interesting parts of the islands, with over 1,000 miles of road too so it's an interesting cycling destination.
