Cruising in Shetland - Fair Isle
Well known from the shipping forecast, Fair Isle is the Southern most inhabited island of the Shetland Islands lying half way between Orkney and the Mainland of Shetland.
The island is owned by the National Trust and is inhabited by approximately 70 people. Visitors receive a warm welcome from the whole community.
Cruise ships are too large to enter the small harbour. Passengers and visitors will need to be shuttled ashore by launch or small boat. Landing facilities are basic but once again with prior warning the local residents can be on hand to help.
