Truly get away from it all with a visit to Fair Isle.

Immortalised in the shipping news, and famous for its distinctive knitwear, Fair Isle is the most remote thriving community in the UK. It lies almost exactly halfway between Shetland and Orkney and can be reached by boat or small plane.

Ashore is a warm, welcoming community, consisting mainly of craftspeople, conservationists, boat-builders and crofters. Renowned as a place to see birds, there is much else to discover – from archaeological remains to the famous Stevenson lighthouses.

Fair Isle is a birdwatcher’s paradise, being a vital stopping-off place for migrating birds, and more than 350 species have been recorded here.
