Rambling around Burrastow

The walking trails around Burrastow House where we were staying were phenomenal. Just outside our door were spectacular views of sheep-dotted fields criss-crossed with beautiful stone walls. Breath-taking cliffs that tower over the wild ocean. Hills covered with just-blooming heather and other wildflowers. Sweet and shy Shetland ponies...

It's easy to see how Shetland artists and artisands are inspired by their stunning surroundings.















































Ooh I could live here! Can't wait to come back.

C'est si beau ! Et puis, oui, mille fois oui, c'est inspirant ! (Et parfait quand on a bien tricoté, pour se balader bien emmitouflée, eheh !)

Love that you stayed in Burrastow, that's where we were all booked to stay last year on a trip with friends I had to drop out of. Luckily they could all still go and had the most amazing time.

Gorgeous images.
