SIMON KING - SHETLAND DIARIES

SIMON KING - SHETLAND DIARIES Image

Long before he set foot on the islands, Simon fell in love with Shetland. The romantic mix of a northerly wilderness that is home to otters, vast seabird colonies and the chance encounter of a killer whale was enough to compel him to spend a year getting to know the place that fuelled his boyhood dreams.

With his wife and their young daughter, Simon visited Britain’s most northerly Isles through a year to follow its wildlife and discover if the reality of life in this wilderness would live up to his dreams.
