If you live in Shetland or you’ve made the great decision to come and visit us, the Shetland Visitor magazine that we produce annually is a must have holiday tool to make sure you make the most of your time when out and about.

Shetland Visitor is a handy A5 format and has 128pp packed full of ideas for fun days out, trips to take, places and businesses to visit, local area information/tips as well as a “What’s On” guide.

The majority of the photography we use is sourced from local amateur photographers and visitors who have taken the time to visit and see the special sights of Shetland. If you have any relevant scenic photos from your trip visiting Shetland, why not send them into us at info@shetlandtimes.co.uk and we can consider them for our next edition.

We hope you enjoy our Shetland Visitor holiday magazine (digital edition also available at http://edition.pagesuite.com/html5/reader/production/default.aspx?pubname=&edid=8fdbecf6-7e57-4f27-a4a1-aadce80606a3).

If you’ve been on social media over the last few days #uphellyaa may just have been on your radar or perhaps infiltrated your notification feeds!

On the last Tuesday of January every year the Up Helly Aa festival takes place in Shetland with 1000+ men taking part in a torchlit procession in the evening through the island capital Lerwick. The culmination of the procession is the burning of a replica viking longship that is known as the galley. For more in-depth information go to www.uphellyaa.org to read about the origins of the festival.

To provide a comprehensive flavour of the whole day and evening events, we produce a limited edition, 36pp A4, Up Helly Aa Souvenir programme which is packed with  full colour photos. WARNING, once you’ve bought a copy at shop.shetlandtimes.co.uk, you’ll want to book a visit to see next year’s festival!!

You’ll be made very welcome and we’ll be glad to see you.
