  1. You can also fly to Inverness which has flights to London. I've started buying codeshare tickets from BA for Shetland-Scotland-London so that I don't have to worry about missing flights if the fog grounds everything here. They're on the limit of affordable, but it takes the worry out of mixing airlines, which I have to do more often due to Flybe no longer operating the Aberdeen-Gatwick route.
  2. In this case, size is important - the buildings are simply not big enough to take a full size one
  3. Aberdeen to Gatwick was my most used route - but they were losing money on it, so it got chopped.
  4. There will be lifesize Killer Whale and Minke Whale heads in the new vistor centre.
  5. One of this year's tourist booklets contained a great typo about the Mareel... it said it was due to open in 2021 instead of 2012
  6. And the story goes... 1. Lamb gets into enclosed field with mum on the outside - cue lots of bleating 2. Phone SSPCA - very helpful 3. Nearest neighbour manages to get get lamb and ewe in an enclosed paddock... but they get out!
  7. I only saw them once since I posted, so presumed they had been rescued... until just now, when they strolled past my living room window. Give them credit, they seem to have survived a week on the loose! I live down a steep hill and have just watched them walk all the way along the road, inside the barrier. The adult looks very straggly around the neck, like it's been trying to push through (or it could be perfectly normal!). They don't have the markings like all the sheep in the field opposite. Think I will call the SSPCA.
  8. There's a sheep and lamb which seems to have got free from its field and wandering outside my house for the past couple of days - not that unusual for Shetland, I know, but I live just off the main south road which they can now access. Is there anyone I can tell?
  9. I thought I'd seen it all in Shetland until... I was traveling north between Levenwick and Sandwick and someone overtook me on the inside of the Bigton bend
  10. On Sunday, I saw two on the cliffs, so it's the calm before the mass arrival!
  11. Not had a chance to buy this week's paper - is it on today (April 7) ?
  12. Anyone heard if this is on or off - as the ad says weather permitting (I think the weather is quite tame at the mo, but not sure what level of weather forces cancellation).
  13. I fall in love with Shetland properties on a regular basis and I don't need to peek inside - it's like seeing someone you fancy... sometimes, you go off them when you get to know them, but from the outside they are hot
  14. After buying my car, I used to get flashed quite a lot when I had the regular lights on. I had it serviced, and nobody flashed me, so I'm guessing something was slightly wonky and it got sorted by the garage.
