They say that Scotland is the most geologically diverse small country in the whole world and I would contend that Shetland is the most diverse part of Scotland.
Our most northerly isle has rich sandstone soils, a possible continuation of the Great Glen fault, some ocean crust that was thrust up during the Caledonian mountain building period and amazing lava formations. It has so much interesting geology that in 2010 it became a Geopark.
