The scenery surrounding St Ninian’s Isle in Shetland looks like something straight out of National Geographic. This wee island is attached to the largest active ‘tombolo’ (or ‘ayre’ in local lingo) in the UK. The great big bays sweep around the ‘muckle’ (huge) swathes of silver sands. Keen fishermen gravitate to this haven to fish in the ‘voes’, or bays. There is nothing more fascinating than watching sea trout dancing above and below Atlantic-sized waves chasing the minnow bait. In 1958, a local schoolboy and archaeologists unearthed hidden treasure that dated back to 800 AD, which contained silver bowls and jewellery. The real treasure, however, is the spectacular beaches.
