"Fair Isle - Britain's most remote inhabited island" Fair Isle by tini58de

Fair Isle Travel Guide: 59 reviews and 85 photos

Fair Isle is the southernmost island of the Shetlands and it is truly a very remote place!

On our trip to the Arctic we landed on Fair Isle and spent a few hours there - very enjoyable hours, too with a nice walk, some bird watching and half of the inhabitants welcoming us with a little trade fair.

I love to think back of this short stay-
it really was heartwarming!

    Fair Isle sounds amazing. I just have to know, is that a real picture of the puffins? They look so cartoonlike!

    Absolutely fantastic.... And it reminds of British professional etiquetties,the lady who posted that promptly,something which is lacking inmany partsof the world!!!

    Just adorable the main pic of puffins!!! Those birds are so lovely! I liked your Fair Isle page. It looks worth a visit, especially if you can travel around it on feet :)

    These pages are wonderful.Incredible place and you managed to capture a good feel of the place. The puffin is a beautiful bird. But I wouldn't fancy that boat road in bad weather! Thanks for sharing.Tim

    Yes I did get a big laugh at your phone booth pic - almost identical to mine and I have seen others too, not sure where. Your lighting is better than mine.
