Northern Islands

Unst & Yell

Glorious Shetland islands known for seabird colonies, ‘dratsies’, seals and ponies

Things to do


Yell is known for its important nature reserves and impressive seabird populations.

Keep your eyes peeled for otters, known locally as ‘dratsies’ – Yell is one of the best places in Europe to spot them.


If you’re looking to stay for a holiday, try Belmont House on Unst, a Georgian masterpiece built in 1775 for landowner Thomas Moffat.
