The Shetland Islands: on the edge of Britain
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!
Is this true.... Britain consists of England and wales & Great Britain consists of England,wales and Scotland?
Britain and Great Britain are one and the same.
The site that you are quoting from was created by children
for children. Your best site for this is the wikipedia entry
on Great Britain.
Great Britain consists of England, Scotland and Wales together,
along with all of the other islands around the coast that are not
self governing. Thus, the Orkney Isles, Hebrides, Isle of Wight,
Shetland, Anglesey and the Scilly Isles are all part of GB.
The Channel Islands are self governing.
When we refer to the UK however, we say the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern ireland.
Can anyone from Scotland help me think up some Scottish names for my new Shetaland Sheepdog puppies?
You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
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?
Will Shetland and Orkney get their independence from Scotland?
Good point, thanks for reminding me. Shetland is a Viking island and so too is Orkney - the very names have that ring of the Vikings about them.
Indeed, the world's biggest Viking event is held each year on the Island of Shetland

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?
