We are travelling this year to the Shetland Islands.  We will base ourselves on the South/Westerly side, in Walls*, perfectly located to enable us to explore the island of Papa Stour and the stunning coastline.  We have booked exclusive use of the stunning Voe House Böd. Overlooking the picturesque village of Walls, Voe House Böd is a fascinating building which has been carefully restored using recycled building materials. The original building, adjoining the böd and now derelict, is thought to have been a 16th century manse. The böd itself probably dates from the mid 18th century. This expedition base allows us to maximise the weather and paddling opportunities.   Bring your small tent or bivvy bag, we aim to wild camp as well!

We travel from Holyhead for a camping expedition on the South West Coast of Ireland, taking the incredible and remote islands of Little Skellig & Skellig Michael, and also the stunning Blasket islands, al the way to Taeracht, the most Westerly outlier.
