The puffin-watching can be a really excellent teraphy for your bad mood. Go to Sumburgh Head - a place where you can be very close to the funny birds. Take a lot of time because you won't be able to stop looking at them. They are really very close and I was talled that it was the best place to watch them in Shetland.
If you have not a lot of time and you would like to see them, plan the trip to Sumburgh Head. But they are there only during the breeding season so far as I know.

If you plan to visit the puffin colony visit this website.
