Fair Isle/Lerwick

On our wat from Orkney to Shetland it was our plan to make a polar-circle-boat landing on Fair Isle for to look at some puffin-colonies and the islanders knitwear. Unfortunatly we had strong easterly winds up to Beaufort 9, so that it was impossible to use our tenders. So we just surrounded the island and continued towards our next destination.

Now we had the possibility to explore the Shetlands capital city during the afternoon, for our arrival was original planned for the evening. Visitors were not always welcome!
