We arrived in Shetland to a wonderful friendly greeting. The owner was helpful and pleasant. My only regret is that we had such a short visit there. Thanks for all your help, we hope to return for a longer visit next time.

Ah Yes Hopefully you shall come and stay again - the main comment we get from 'short break' guests is that they didnt realise how much there was to see! So indeed a return trip might just be the thing ;-)
