I spent four nights on the Scottish Shetland Islands in May 2010 on a McKinlay Kidd Shetland flydrive press trip.Â Below is a photo tour of these lovely islands, arranged from the south to the north of the main island (Shetland Mainland), with a few forays to nearby smaller islands enroute.

I thought that the Shetland Islands were jaw droppingly beautiful and my Europe travel tip for anyone visiting Scotland is to make a trip to these islands.
