Cheap Shetland Islands Vacation Packages

History and natural scenery are two attributes that can perhaps never escape Scotland. Located on the northeastern extreme of this country of William Wallace is the subarctic archipelago of a hundred islands, together known as Shetland Islands. Though only a sixth of it is inhabited, yet this archipelago is a good place to spend a few days this winter. Hikers and mountain bikers would find it a lot of fun, ditto for water sports enthusiasts. Deep sea fishing and bird watching is more of a rage than leisure here and you’ll be well advised to start in early morning for both.

Places of Interest in Shetland Islands
Shetland Museum and Archives
Shetland Museum and Archives in Lerwick is the most tangible part of Scottish history on the isles that ranges from the period of Ordnance Survey maps and court records to the moment when the first telephone was introduced in the isle. You will also find here an old Boat Shed that has, since ages, seen the way fishery and transportation was being carried out here. It also has a neat assortment of a cafe restaurant, auditorium and study rooms to its credit to keep the visitors hooked.

Shetland Crofthouse Museum
It would be hard to decide if time has ever laid its icy hands on this cottage. Shetland Crofthouse Museum in Dunrossness is a restored cottage that appears just as it would have looked to a fisherman a hundred and fifty years ago on this island. It is an experience like none else to explore this iconic place from left, right and centre to get an absolute feel of the way things were then.

Jarlshof Prehistoric Settlement
Bronze Age, Iron Age, Pictish Period, Viking Age - you can keep on naming the periods and Jarlshof Prehistoric Settlement would still be standing. This Historic Scotland site contains heritages from 2500 BC up to the seventeenth century. The Bronze Age heritage is characterized here by several small oval houses with thick stone walls, plus various artifacts. The Iron Age ruins include several different types of structure like a defensive wall around the site. The Pictish period provides various works of art including a painted pebble and a symbol stone. The Viking age ruins depict many old tools and a detailed insight into life in Shetland Island, thus making it the largest of any such site in Britain.
