At last, after far more years than I care to remember my new book hit the shelves earlier this month. To have written this book is a huge honour. This feels especially so as it is now 35 years since the legendary Shetland naturalist, the late Bobby Tulloch wrote his celebration of our islands and their wildlife, ‘Bobby Tulloch’s Shetland’. When I first approached my publishers, The Shetland Times a decade ago my proposal was to profile Shetland’s most iconic species throughout the seasons.

As a small enterprise, it’s easy to imagine that our impact on the environment is insignificant, but for us, being in business carries a responsibility.

We’re delighted to work in partnership with SCOTLAND: The Big Picture, a charity that works to drive the recovery of nature across Scotland through rewilding, in response to the growing climate and biodiversity crises. Each year, we contribute a percentage of our income to a dedicated rewilding fund that catalyses the creation of n ..read more
