What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent? Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
Ferry from Scotland to Iceland and Greenland? Smyril Lines used to stop in the Shetland Islands (Scotland) on their way from Denmark to Iceland but they no longer have any UK stops so it is not possible to take a ferry from Scotland to Iceland. If you are set on taking a ferry (I would love it) then you need to start your journey in Denmark and go to Iceland via the Faroe Islands. I'm not aware of any ferries to Greenland however there are cruise ships that go if that is what you are interested in. http://http://
We would love to go to the Shetland Islands but can not afford the price. Could anyone tell me where I would find a lot of ponies in? Scotland
Moving to Scotland? Help !? You'll need a job first; landlords require proof of income before they'll rent. Have you considered where in Scotland you want to live? It varies considerably from cities such as Edinburgh to very remote areas such as the Shetland islands.
Do people speak English in Scotland? What is the language that they speak when they are on the TV? Yes they speak English in Scotland and in some parts they speak Gaelic too. Scotland isn't an island, but there are a lot of Scottish islands like the Orkney's, Shetland and the Hebrides (Outer and Inner). There are a few airports like Glasgow, Prestwick and Edinburgh to name three of the main airports. There are train stations all over Scotland too many to name here! Tossing the caber at the Highland game is still done! I would give the Scottish Tourist board a call to get any other information. Or if you like click here http://
Im from Ireland, do I need a visa to work in Scotland? Yes, yes you do. Since Nov 2009 Scotland is no longer part of the UK, as you will already know. See: http://thescotsman.sc/independenceatlast... They are going to apply for EU membership but that dpends on a number of issues, will they continue eating deep fried snickers and so on. You can work visa free in the Shetland islands as they have broken away from Scotland and are now ruled directly from London. So, I'd set my sights on the Shetlands, lovely spot so I hear.

North Ronaldsay is the northernmost island of Orkney and today the primary school is saying farewell to its only pupil, 11-year-old Teigan Scott.

How to get from the Faroe Islands to the Shetland Islands How do I get from the Faroe Islands to the Shetland Islands or the other way round? Is there anything besides a flight via Scotland?
Encountering Weasels in the Wild in Scotland I understand that it's possible, but difficult, to visit Scotland and see weasels in the wild and I'm interested in this. I would need to use Scotland's 'Right to Roam' rules because I don't know anyone with substantial amounts of property there. Is there a particular 'Right to Roam' trail where the chances of observing a weasel, possibly even a weasel family, might be higher than another trail? Or are the trails generally the same with respect to spotting a weasel?I understand that one must sit very still in an isolated location and wait for a long time before a weasel will pass by, and that overall it's a matter of luck. Is there anything that can be done to improve the chances? I considered bringing some dog treats but then worried that it's probably against the rules. Also is there anything else that can be done so as not to disrupt the other wildlife that may be using the area?It would be great to select a spot where I could observe both a weasel and a seal (a view over the water). Is there a 'Right to Roam' vantage point that offers that possibility? It's not an 'outdoors' question, it's more about nature along with what can be seen and where.Question: what's the range of weasel varieties in Scotland? Where are they most likely to be seen? Does time of day may any difference?
Is free / wild camping legal or tolerated on Kinmen and Matsu islands? Matsu island of Taiwan (but actually located just near Fuzhou, China) is beautiful and sparsely populated. Official tourist accommodations are expensive compared to PRC and even a little high compared to Taiwan perhaps.It seems like a gorgeous place to camp wild. But I can't seem to find anywhere if you might get in trouble for doing so outside an official campground. In fact I can't even find info regarding whether there are official campgrounds.I'd assume the answer for Matsu would be the same for Kinmen (Quemoy) since they are often mentioned together though not actually so close to each other as I just found out.

Where can I see Shetland ponies on Unst? I will be spending a couple days on Unst on the Shetland Islands next year. My wife is very keen on seeing some Shetland ponies, and I am wondering how to go about this.My research seems to indicate that Unst is a good place for this. Furthermore it seems that they are roaming freely and one can find them grazing at the roadsides. Now, by randomly looking through some Google Streetview, all I can find is a lot of sheep.So my question is, how do I go about to find Shetland ponies on Unst? Is there a high probability of us finding them at the roadside without looking for them or are there specific places (farms, parks) where one would have to go to find them?
Affordable yacht holiday around Cook Islands / Pacific Islands Does anyone know any affordable options for some form of yacht / boat holiday around the Cook Islands or other Pacific Islands? I'd really like to explore a bit off the normal beaten path with a bit of island hopping.I guess there might be private smaller yacht owners that occasionally take passengers on-board for a bit of extra cash? Any methods to reach out to such potential providers?
