Hi, my names Leah & I want to take you on my Shetland adventure.
Born and brought up here I enjoyed a very special childhood. Filled with fresh air and exploring.
When I was 17 I moved to Edinburgh to study at university. City life was great & Edinburgh will always be my second home, but my adult life took me back to the Islands to pursue a career in economic development.
The fact is, this place is special. It just has a feeling & my aim is to show you that. So follow me in daily life to discover what I get up to. From breath taking views to discovering what’s happening socially from our local regattas to music festivals.
I’m no journalist, I’m not even sure I can write a blog. I’m not even a photographer, certainly no historian or naturalist. But I am just me & that’s what you are going to get.
So come along and enjoy the fun and learn what’s it’s like to live on a windswept northerly island which is very much it’s own, but influenced by both Scandinavian and Scottish culture.
