Island Trails News Update - 1st October 2020

Current Tour Status

Due to the covid19 virus and the necessary social distancing restrictions in place Island Trails has not been operating over the 2020 summer season.    Recent guidance is that tour guides should not be running minibus tours at present so I have decided not to undertake any tours over the winter months.   I will be taking the minibus off the road for the winter and very much hope to resume in the spring of 2021.

Travel to and from Shetland

Please visit the Northlink Ferries and Loganair websites for up to date information on travel to and from Shetland.

Future bookings with Island Trails

Despite not running tours at present I am very happy to receive enquiries and bookings for future tours, please get in touch to discuss your plans and requirments.   A number of 2020 customers are already rebooking for 2021 which is encouraging.   Email me on or use the contact form here on the website.

A great resouce for those planning future trips is the Promote Shetland website, with loads of info covering every aspect of a holiday in Shetland.

Watch Shetland online

No I'm not referring to Jimmy Perez and Co but to the Shetland Webcams.   While planning your future trip to Shetland why not watch the islands and some of our wildlife live online via a series of webcams dotted around the islands. 


Stay safe everyone and I look forward to being of service to you in the future, helping you make the most of your time in Shetland.  For now you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram at @islandtrails.Shetland  and I also tweet occasionally under @Island_Trails  

Best wishes,   James.
