May textile tour

At the Wool Brokers At the Wool BrokersOur first textile tour of the season has just ended and what a great time we have had. 

Each one of our tours is different, and this one started with a day in the South Mainland before heading up to the North Isles via the Westside, followed by a day in Lerwick and ending up with the journey to Eshaness and the spectacular scenery of the North of the islands. 

Here are some pictures of places we have been and sights we have seen. Hover your pointer over the picture to see what it is of. Now we can't wait until the next tour in August!
