Our destination is the remote islands of Shetland in the far north of Scotland, and our purpose is to celebrate the Summer Solstice. This special period is known in these parts as ‘Simmer Dim’, and we will experience the night-long twilight at Sumburgh Head Lighthouse and Nature Reserve. Visit several truly amazing ancient sites and learn about the history, myths and legends which surround these wildly beautiful islands. Delve into Shetland’s Viking heritage and visit the Up Helly Aa Exhibition in Lerwick. We will stop at the fascinating Braemar Highland Games Centre on our way back to Edinburgh.
