Thank you all for your replies. I can understand your feelings. I'm Scottish and Cornish. I was born near Mallaig in Lochaber and moved to Cornwall in my teens, where my mother was from(she was half Scottish herself though.). And I feel a far stronger affinity to the Western highlands and Cornwall than I do to England, Britain or even Scotland. Shetland looks like a beautiful place and when I come home from where I am now(Australia.), which won't be too long, I hope to visit it.
I have a question for Shetlanders. I was just wondering whether you guys consider yourselves more Norweigan or Scottish. Because I recently came across someone claiming Shetlanders considered themselves as Norweigans but I've never heard this before and I'm pretty sure this person was from Norway themselves. Anyway thanks in advance.
