From the Author: 

“This guidebook is a love letter to our islands, a thank-you of sorts. A thank-you for the summer nights, the winter storms, the calm and the chaos; they are a thank-you for the sting of salt on the cheeks and the first warmth from the May sun, and an acknowledgement of the extreme privilege I have to be able to call Shetland my home.”  ~Laurie Goodlad
