We have had lots of visitors this Christmas and I think Marilyn is definitely from the furthest away. She has driven down from Shetland to visit her son in Yorkshire and then on to spend a few days with me. I have just waved her off into the snowy north. It was great to catch up and it has made me feel another visit to the Islands is overdue.
It is a lovely place full of lovely people and an abundance of wildlife and especially the birds.
Lerwick is a great place and there is a strong connection with Norway.
Look on the Shetland web site and be tempted ! Marilyn runs a great b&b looking down the " voe " to the sea.
As you see I took her to a Dorset favourite ..Lyme Regis which was a great hit.
