Shetland Islands. The real reasons for the lack of trees are to do with clearance for firewood and the presence of sheep, which have prevented natural regeneration. Where sheep are excluded, trees grow with little or no shelter.
North West Shetland And Eshaness When porting in Lerwick this is probably one of the most popular tours of the island, this will take you to the North West of the Shetland mainland. Pass through Tingwall Valley and on to the picturesque community of Voe with its Scandinavian influence. The scenery becomes more and more spectacular as you head north through Brae and onto Eshaness with magnificent views of the Atlantic and outstanding cliff scenes. £27pp
