A truly unique opportunity to join local crofter Chris Dyer (featured in Kate Davies blogs) on an exclusive walk through the agricultural year in Shetland, looking at the sheep – ewes, rams and lambs. White/coloured/fleckit and even katmogget! Sift through fleeces from Chris’s flock and see the principal day to day tools and equipment that are used by a Shetland crofter! Chris’s croft is mixed with pigs, turkeys, hens and vegetables alongside his beautifully coloured sheep, so there is plenty to see.

THIS TRIP INCLUDES A FERRY ACROSS TO THE ISLAND OF BRESSAY. PLEASE ARRIVE 5 MINUTES PRIOR TO DEPARTURE AT THE BRESSAY FERRY TERMINAL IN LERWICK WHERE YOU WILL BE GREETED IN PERSON BY CHRIS DYER AND ACCOMPANIED ACROSS BRESSAY SOUND.

TRANSPORT ACROSS THE ISLAND OF BRESSAY AND FERRY FARES FROM LERWICK ARE INCLUDED IN THE COST.

THE LATE AFTERNOON TOUR WILL TAKE THE 4.30PM FERRY TO BRESSAY AND THE 7.00PM FERRY BACK TO LERWICK.
