    Hi all

    We are heading off in a couple of weeks time to motorhome in the most northerly part of Britain that you can possible get to, Shetland! Really looking forward to it and especially being able to enjoy some legitimate Wild Camping!

    Have just about everything covered, I think...likely to be spoilt for choice as far as wild camp locations are concerned, but that said, if anyone has any previous experience of Shetland, tips, nice locations to park up etc thenwe would love to hear from you.

    Cheers...couple of things, I have gaslow and calor lite, I'm asuming the gaslow might be scarce but what about calor? Is booking on the inter-island ferries necessary (suggested on older posts) as this can tie you down a bit? Cheers Dave

    Hi Dave, there is a local business who are the calor dealers

    http://www.jsmorkney.co.uk/calorgas.htm

    So far as booking on the inter-island ferries, I would say yes if you can. We have some ongoing disputes up here at the mo and some ferries are being cancelled and diverted. When are you thinking of coming?

    We arrive in Lerwick on 4th July and make our way to Unst in time for the Uyeasound Regatta and the start of Unstfest week. That is all we have planned at the moment, we have no return booked to Aberdeen and intend just staying as long as we feel an meandering about at will and as the mood takes us!
