Roads are fantastic! flat smooth quiet cambered fast B roads! bikers caught on years ago with regular visitors but cars should get involved!
videos arnt the best but you'd soon get the idea!

Well after a Semi serious comment (and enough thread theft from the Scottish meet) this idea has been growing on me!

it would clearly be 2017 now (and i'm getting married this year so that rules out this summer)

but "theoretically" if I arranged this how much interest would there be?

ferry from Aberdeen sails each evening so lets say pick a Friday night arrive Saturday morning, Saturday to see the sights/roads etc, Saturday night accommodation somewhere, another day of it on Sunday and return on the Sunday evening ferry? back in Aberdeen 0700 ish on Monday morning....

now all this sounds delightful until i give you some numbers... an adult ticket is £82 return, the car would be £292 return and accomadation can be from £168-£280 depending on what you want, 2 berth 4 berth etc etc... all peak season im afraid

yes yes as i write i can feel the   but it is what it is (and what more than likely makes this a useless post) but doesn't take away that this still a fantastic idea with huge potential to do something different in a new place with some stunning scenery great roads and a good laugh.... may well be on some peoples bucket lists!!

Recognise that last pic from the TV Drama series Shetland?  Was it genuinely all filmed on location?

I spent a week or two on Orkney about ten years ago and it was absolutely stunning, I imagine Shetland is even more unspoiled and natural.  

Your post [several months back] about 'what do I do with my keys if I cannot leave them in the ignition' made me laugh and reminded me of holidays in Durness and Isle of Skye (parents just spent a week in Durness again).  Front door never gets locked, postman comes in and put the post on your table etc.  A different way of life.

ye Orkney is very flat in comparison to Shetland! Shetlands flat in the south but more like the western isles in the north! Oil money means the roads are second to none!

all external shots are 99% done on location so it is a great advert for the place if you dont mind being murdered...

Yes security is not much of an issue for sure   my postman does the very same! its a nice way to live!
