What a great company, although it was not the best year to see otters, out guide went out of his way to give us the best chances to see otters. We really enjoyed our trip and the guide was most knowledgeable. Great day!
Highly recommend this tour company. We covered much of the Shetland Mainland in a day beginning at 930a and finish at about 6p. Our guide, Martha, was very knowledgeable and paced the day well with a good amount of time at each of the places...More

In our guide Gary Bell’s capable hands our group of five...More

Killer whales are anybody's guess, as you say, they can turn up anywhere. Quam B+B on Yell is a good base for getting around most of the islands, being one ferry ride from each of Fetlar, Unst and Mainland. Most places are pretty good for wildlife, so you won't go too far wrong wherever you are based. I would recommend moving between a few places while you are there, we normally stay on Fetlar, Unst and south mainland, but Yell is best if you want just one base throughout. Roads are normally very good and it normally takes us 2-3 hours from north Unst to south Mainland, depending on ferry times. Hope that helps.
