Stuart has kindly sent in a selection of images captured on Shetland when they undertook the Puffins of Fair Isle Photography Holiday led by Kevin Morgans.
is the most remote inhabited island in the United Kingdom
. It is administratively part of the parish of Dunrossness, Shetland, & is roughly equidistant from Sumburgh
Head some 24 miles to the northeast on the Mainland of Shetland & North Ronaldsay, Orkney, some 27 miles to the southwest. Fair Isle is 3 miles long & 1.5 miles wide. It has an area of 3 sq miles, making it the tenth largest of the Shetland Islands.
Fair Isle has a permanent bird observatory
, founded by George Waterston in 1948. Because of its importance as a bird migration watchpoint, it provides virtually all of the accommodation on the island.
, that is the reason for our photography holidays
to both Fair Isle & Skomer
which enables the capture of images like this
