Photos and the City

Slow travel & photography

My first lovely tiny house, a former shed, was situated between the villages Sandwick and  Hoswick about a 20 to 30-minute drive from Lerwick. Da Peerie Hoose is a lovely and quirky place and I can highly recommend it. This former shed or barn was lovingly restored by Arlene and her husband and it is the cosiest place.

After getting a bit refreshed and having some breakfast, I was ready to explore the immediate neighbourhood. Just down the street was the village shop, I learned to love these little village shops, often community-owned, which seem to have everything. In the other direction, the path brought me towards Hoswick, the lovely Hoswick visitor centre and the local beach. The honesty cake box behind the visitor centre was, unfortunately, empty but seems to be highly recommended when you´re in the area. (Honesty boxes were something else I fell in love with).

There are no trees in Shetland but lots and lots of flowers, often even wild orchids.

After my little walk, I decided to drive to Sumburgh Head – way down in the south of Shetland.

On the way, I passed Mousa Island and another stunning beach.
