Island Trails News Update - July 2021

Current Tour Status

Island Trails is currently offering private tours only, restricted to persons in one family or one "covid bubble."   Some outdoor walks are also possible weather permitting.   My normal weekly tour schedule has been suspended for the remainder of the 2021 season and I am accepting tour bookings on request subject to availablity.   I am pleased to have a good number of tours with customers who rebooked from 2020 so some weeks are quite busy and others much less so.   If you are looking for a tour please contact me via the form on the contact page or email   

Facemasks are still required while travelling on vehicle tours anywhere in Scotland and I am cleaning and sanitising the vehicle between tours.  Other measures include having adequate ventilation and frequent stops to get out into the fresh air during the day on all vehicle based tours.    Contact details of customers need to be kept for 21 days for track and trace.

Travel to and from Shetland

Please visit the Northlink Ferries and Loganair websites for up to date information on travel to and from Shetland.

A great resouce for planning your trip to Shetland is the Promote Shetland website, with loads of info covering every aspect of a holiday in Shetland and info on current coronavirus regulations.

Watch Shetland online

No I'm not referring to Jimmy Perez and Co but to the Shetland Webcams.   While planning your future trip to Shetland why not watch the islands and some of our wildlife live online via a series of webcams dotted around the islands.
