The Private House Stay's Guide
Whereas they say that the Orcadians (Population of Orkney) mainly farm, and fish a bit, the Shetlanders are known to fish, and farm a bit. Although the 100 islands and islets of Shetland measure about 70 miles in length, there is 900 miles of coastline and a population of 23,000. It is further North than Moscow and further from London than Milan and now is an important centre for the North Sea oil industry. It is a wild and dramatic place but can be visited easily enough by ferry from Aberdeen or Kirkwall using Northlink Ferries. There is much to see for bird-watchers.
