    Once a gift to Scotland from a Norwegian king, the Shetland Islands are a world apart from anything you’ll experience on the British mainland. Famed for an abundance of white, sandy beaches and crumbling Viking long houses, the number of exciting places to explore on foot here is endless.My favourite run on the islands is from Sandwick to Westa Voe. After you pass Bigton, take a little detour to St Ninian’s beach, voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and you'll see why!Keep an eye out for seals resting on the rocks at Spiggie Bay, enjoy a run across (yes, I said across!) the airport runway before landing at the windswept crescent moon of silky white sand that is West Voe Beach.If that doesn’t fill up your adventure boots, you could add on a little run around the nearby old Nordic settlement of Jarlshof or scamper up to Sumburgh head for some hang-time with the puffins.
