A Miss or a Must?

The BBC Website has details of how there are new plans to boost tourism in Shetland. In it is a reference to how three of its off-shore islands have not been part of the recent trend in increasing numbers of tourists. So, perhaps, these are the places to visit - a must for travellers?

Foula (top) claims to be the most remote of the British isles and its population has steadily declined. Papa Stour (above) has seen a slump in numbers towards single figures. The Out Skerries (below) has lost some facilities, but retains an airstrip that is among the shortest in the world. Last year 90,000 people came into Lerwick on cruise liners. None was able to access these islands without jumping ship!
