This is a beautiful part of the world with a satisfyingly different lifestyle from the metropolitan centres. The diverse nature of Shetland’s culture, the stunning scenery, the wildlife, the local dialects as well as the spread of different islands all make for greater professional and personal challenges. Shetland is a world where wildlife is truly wild - otters and seals play in quiet coves and the air is full of the sound of wild birds crowding the jagged cliffs in huge and noisy colonies. There are regular sightings of killer whales and superb displays of rare sub-arctic flora.
