Tall Ships; Small Planes
Tingwall Airport, Shetland, may not be large, but it is a hub for inter-island services operated by Directflight. Residents and visitors can connect with Foula, Papa Stour, Fair Isle and the Out Skerries. Recall how long journeys took to these outlying settlements in pre-aviation days. A bonus to passengers in mid-July will be to see the Tall Ships approaching, moored and departing from Lerwick.
