Hi there! 

We are two girls from Denmark, studying abroad in bonnie Scotland.

We discovered that the two nothern archipelagos, Orkney and Shetland, have Scandinavian heritage and that there should be Puffins by the isles now! 

Therefore we are arranging a trip to Orkney and Shetland to end our year abroad with the most amazing experience. 

As the trip is quite expensive, any contribute is appreciated! 

Help us support the economy of Orkney and Shetland! Help us get to the most northern part of Scotland! And help us achieve the best possible trip with Scotlands beautiful nature.

Also if you have any suggestions as to sightseeing or transport on the isles, please fell free to comment below or send an e-mail to s1796505@sms.ed.ac.uk

We thank you in advance!


Lots of gratitude from,
Emilie and Maria
