My trip was not planned for a long time. I suddenly had the chance to visit Shetland due to my job on-board a boat and bad weather. So to arrange for a guided tour out of season and on short notice was not the smoothest sailing. But Ruth answered my cry for help and picked me in Queens hotel. A very nice lady loaded with knowledge that bubbled up wherever I pointed and whatever I asked. She had arranged a day trip northward on mainland with a historical view. Stopping and showing me places of significance and giving me plenty of Kodac-moments. We literally drove under the rainbow, going north to explore. Vikinglaws, Scottish lords, unsolved crimes, sheep's of different mixes, peat, adorable ponies and lots 9f nature and geology. She served it all. Coffe in a lords house and lunch, all local produce while sitting in the remains of once The Gutting Girls workingplace facing the red hill of Ronas. I had a perfect day out with guide Ruth. Hope to come back one day. There are so much more to se.

Dear Heidi We were blessed with unusual sunny weather and glorious rainbows but your enthusiasm for all things Shetland made the tour a delight and pleasure. I hope you return one day to explore more of these amazing islands. Best Wishes Ruth.

We had just part of a day available but Ruth went far out of her way to make the most of it. She took the time to discover what our interests were and beautifully tailored the next few hours to fit. It takes less than 2 miles in the passenger seat of Ruth’s car to sense her passion for Shetland! The best part was hearing the oral history she has obviously worked so hard to collect, you can’t get that from a guide book or Google! Ruins, rocks and a rich Shetland history came to life for me that day. Very much hoping to return to Shetland and take the Crofting Experience tour with Ruth someday!

I was traveling to Shetland for wool week and wanted to see the islands of Yell and Unst. Ruth provided an amazing experience that was curated exactly to my interests while adding additional elements the i never would have thought of on my own.it was a wonderful experience that i won’t soon forget. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Ruth if you want a personalized experience with someone who cares so much for the land and history. A+++++++ and all the Shetland ponies :)
