Thank for your review, Catherine. I enjoyed the day out as well. I always believe that my trips should be fun as well as informational. And Mollie was a delight to have along with us.

We made a last minute flight to Shetland and it was wonderful. Our tour guide Les picked us up at the airport and spent the day showing us all of the Shetland Islands. We were very surprised at the beauty and history- worth a trip!
