Do you know there are 12 Up Helly Aa festivals held in Shetland per annum?
Shetland's unique location makes for a very special food and drink offering.
Shetland has exported a range of famous products for centuries: wool, lamb and knitwear, fish, ponies and in more recent years, oil. But by far the most important, but perhaps less obvious of these, is people.
For thousands of years the sea has been the central fact of Shetland life - a source of food, employment, timber, fertiliser and, before roads were built in the mid-19th century, the main means of getting around the archipelago. Until the 1930s the sea was also the only way to travel to and from the outside world. The maritime history of Shetland is both interesting and facinating.
The rich, unique and vibrant culture of Shetland will give you lots to investigate, explore, see and do while visiting Shetland.
Thanks to renowned fiddlers and musical ambassadors like Aly Bain, Fiddlers Bid and Filska, to name a few, Shetlands music also has a place on the international stage.
