For the last four years my wife and myself have attended the Shetland Folk Festival, indeed we have registered for this year’s as well.
We have a motorhome and stay for around 12 days travelling around and using the excellent campsites in the isles.
Yesterday I thought I should book in at Clickimin Centre for the duration of the folk festival as it is ideal for us and always busy with caravans, campers and motorhomes.
I was informed the campsite was now closed and when I enquired had any other arrangements been made I was informed no, you could always park in a lay-by or travel eight miles to the Westings site which really is not an alternative.
On reflection we will probably not make the trip this year. The ferry will lose out on around £600, campsites on the isles will lose out and shops and pubs will also lose out. Shetland must really be doing well this year.
