About Shetland with Laurie
Shetland with Laurie is the result of my passion for our unique islands history and culture.
Born and bred, I have lived here all my life (bar 4 years at University in Scotland where I studied History & Politics). I am passionate about Shetland and spent 10 years working in Heritage as a Curatorial Assistant at the Shetland Museum and Archives. I gave up this role late in 2018 and accepted the role of Editor of Shetland Life magazine, a vibrant monthly magazine which focuses on Shetland life, culture and community.

Shetland with Laurie was born out of a passion for Shetland, and for sharing our islands history, heritage and culture. I love Shetland and found that telling people about our islands gave me a real buzz, nothing beats enthusing people about Shetland and just sharing in their experience and watching as they are blown away by the landscape, history and wildlife we have to offer.
I hope I can share with you some of my passion and show you some of the places which I find so inspiring.
