We enjoy breakfast on board and we meet our local guide for the first of our amazing Shetland Showcase. Today we focus on the Northern Isles of Yell and Unst. We take the short ferry journey to Yell and take the East Coast road toward Cullivoe for a visit to the Old Haa Museum – full of unusual artefacts from the lives of the Islanders. We continue across Yell and a short ferry journey takes us to Unst, with its many beautiful beaches and the Baltasound Hotel, where we enjoy a light lunch. We see Muckle Flugga Isle and the most Northern tip of the UK for fantastic views and then to Skidbladner to see a replica Viking Long Ship. We then head back to Lerwick and the Shetland Hotel where we spend the next two nights.
