About Unst, Yell & Fetlar

Unst, Yell and Fetlar are the most northerly of the Shetland Islands. Situated right at the far north of Scotland, ponies from these 3 windswept islands are real, authentic Shetland Ponies.

Unst is the most northerly island of the 3 and is as close to Bergen as it is to Aberdeen (160 miles). The weather in these northern isles can be be extremely varied with long summer days with very little daylight to fierce winds and driving snow in the winter. One of the reasons why the Shetland Pony had to be so sturdy and unyielding.

    Just finding fellow equine blog writers who might be interested in the new Equine Social Blogging Network that has been launched recently called Haynet. We are trying to centralise of the horsey bloggers out there than can promote their blogs, increasing readership and introduce equiners that are new to blogging. Please take time and come along and take a look:


    We are happy for people to advertise equine related businesses/charity too. If you would like to join and would like your link added to our page, we are more than happy to do this if you can promote the Haynet website too.

    If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact.

    Many thanks for your time,


    Sam Hobden
