Nesting, Lunnasting & Delting

These three districts in central Shetland have a great variety of scenery and wildlife, from Mountain Hares and Golden Plovers on the high moorland to seals and otters along the sheltered rocky shores.

Delting Memorial enlarge Delting Memorial Bold headlands and off-lying islets contrast with the superb hummocky peninsulas of North and South Nesting and the dramatic fjord-like landscape of Dales Voe. Just a few miles to the north, Europe's largest exporting oil terminal is tucked into the shore-side landscape of Sullom Voe.

Every week, millions of barrels of oil from the Brent and Ninian fields are pumped into massive oil tankers bound for refineries world wide and yet, within a few minutes drive from the terminal, you can stand in a secluded valley with an unpolluted pebble beach and trout stream all to yourself.
