Shetland What to Pack

  • Packing for walking

    Pack waterproof overtrousers if you intend to walk and explore; nothing is worse than soaking wet trousers except.......soaking wet feet! So you *do* need sensible walking boots/shoes (the ground can be rough) which won't let in the water. Take more pairs of socks than you usually do, just in case your boots leak. Don't underestimate the risks....

  • Layers!!!

    If you fly in do check Loganair's cabin baggage limits. Their planes are smaller so their size allowance is smaller too. Absolutely do *not* pack assuming the weather will be good, even if you come in summer. UK weather is changeable and Shetland's weather even more so...and it's very far north. So pack clothes you can layer, adding and taking off...

  • Windy and Unstable Ground

    A lot of the walks in the area are on marshy ground and there is often quite a biting wind blowing so take a windproof jacket, maybe a beanie to keep your ears warm and good sturdy walking shoes so you don't slip.
