Shetland is the cross-roads of the northern seas, and unlike anywhere else in Scotland; 112 miles from the most northerly point to the southern tip. Shetland rolls out in a long vista of moor and wiry pasture, penetrated by great sea inlets. Spectacular vertical stacks coated with seabird colonies, cliffs and coves curtained with wild-flowers, hidden white beaches on an endless coast, small crofts and settlements sheltering by the sea-edge; all these are typical Shetland scenes.

Begin your express 45-minute tour by meandering through Lerwick the only town in Shetland, dating from the 1600s, as you make your way north towards the Gott Stud. There you will visit the Gott Ponies, owned and bred by David Robertson. David is a Shetland pony enthusiast, breeding very good quality ponies.  During your 15-minute visit, David or a staff member will be present and will share their knowledge of the beautiful Shetland pony with you. Take this opportunity to photograph Shetlands native ponies in their natural habitat.  Hear more of Shetland’s culture and heritage from your guide on your return journey to the ship.

Note:  Guests must be able to walk approximately 0.10 mile over uneven, packed earth, mud and grassy areas at the farm.  This tour will operate in all weather conditions so participants should take appropriate weather gear with them.  Comfortable, non-slip walking shoes and light jacket are recommended.  The drive to/from Gott Stud is approximately 15 minutes each way, dependent on road and traffic conditions.
