Water, wind and whisky
Instead of having the whisky as a trademark like the Orkneys and the rest of Scotland the Shetland Islands can boast of their very small but very quite Shetland pony, which is known and loved all over most of the World.
The beautiful weather, we were told, it is very seldom on the Shetlands, invited us for our trips to Jarlshof, a former resident of a Norse Jarl. The eldest buildings at this place dated back to the Stone Age, other are from the bronze and Iron Age. It was fascinating walking around looking at the different buildings, it was like being a time traveler.
