Today is the first day of the summer holidays here in Shetland – seven-and-a-half weeks of having the bairns under my feet again. As if having them home for the best part of 2020 wasn’t enough, this holiday seems exceptionally long this year.
That said, I’m looking forward to having a few adventures and taking more time off work to spend time with my family. Shetland is the perfect place to spend the summer holidays. With long days and plenty of outdoor space to enjoy, the only thing you need to worry about is whether you’ve packed enough spare changes of clothes into the boot of the car!
I know that thinking of fun-filled ways to spend the holidays can sometimes be a challenge for many families, so I’ve devised this checklist to help see you through the holidays.
For anyone visiting Shetland, particularly with children, you too can get involved and use this as a handy guide for filling the days of your stay here.
Pssst... I've provided a list of links at the foot of this blog so you can read more about a few of these suggestions, otherwise, print off the checklist and take it with you!
