The wilderness Scotland website and trip advice was comprehensive and very useful. I felt I was well prepared with what I needed to enjoy the trip fully.
Accommodation & Food
The staff at Busta house were friendly and efficient and often had a good sense of humour which was much enjoyed. The food was good. The lunch sandwiches were deliciously filled. The accommodation was very comfortable. And the garden and the immediate area very pretty and relaxing.
Our guide was Kieth Miller who was excellent. It was wonderful to try and absorb his tremendous knowledge about the wildlife and ecology of the Shetlands. We had some great discussions about many things( usually when we were having one of our many lunches sitting on the side of a hill!). Keith could not do enough to facilitate what we wanted to do so that the trip all ran smoothly and our expectations were met.
The Bottom Line
This trip exceeded any expectations I had. The Shetland isles are remote, wild and windy. Walking over its wonderful cliff tops, listening to sea birds call and seeing them soar over the ocean was a joy! Having a well informed guide just meant you didn’t have to worry about anything.
