Day 62 Off to Shetland

Saturday 6 June 2015

Train Edinburgh to Aberdeen then overnight ferry to Lerwick

It was time to pack my rucksack, say goodbye to Ali and set off on my long trip to the Shetland Islands.  

Me and Ali (she’s holding a bag of cous cous I’ve been carrying around as an emergency meal)
 Next week is the first of my 2 planned ‘holidays within a holiday’ as I’m spending the week on Shetland. I really wanted to include the Shetland and Orkney Islands in my trip but can’t possibly walk around everywhere so I picked Shetland and am visiting for a week rather than walking round it. 

I’m hoping for more wildlife and rugged scenery. Heading as far North as possible in Britain is a great way to spend my 40th birthday, away from everyone and any possible parties. Back to walking on Monday 15th June when I will hopefully get back to Kirkcaldy. 

Really pleased that it’s such a windy day here in the North Sea; I hope I’m not seasick!

    Happy 40th you old misery, fancy taking off to the Outer Hebrides to avoid your own birthday and the possibility of a party….Have fun, be safe, Blog lots of photos.
