*Fair Isle's tiny, remote community lives well of the beaten track and a very long way from its nearest supermarket. Specialist food items have to be ordered - often at a premium. We therefore will add a single payment of £25, irrespective of length of stay, to the bill of guests requiring a specific diet.
Whilst Shetland's world class meat and fish are readily available locally and are comparatively inexpensive, other food items need to be brought in and as a result often cost more than they would on the Mainland.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION AND BOOKING
- PLEASE READ THIS NEXT BIT!!
Fair Isle is genuinely remote and its rapidly changing weather can unexpectedly affect travel. In addition, due to this remoteness even minor problem affecting the transport schedule can take longer to remedy than might be the case elsewhere.
This means that, even in summer, there is ALWAYS a distinct possible that you might not be able to get on or off the island on the day you expect.
- Travellers with tickets valid for a specific journey should allow for delays.
- Those exploring Shetland should visit Fair Isle early in their holiday
- You may wish to consider travel insurance.
- If you need to get back on time - don't come!
- Don't cram too much into one holiday, allow plenty of leeway.
- Finally, never chance it - always travel with a plan B!!
(Note that The Good Shepherd and Airtask only charge for journeys undertaken and will carry you on their next available service.)
- Mobile (cell phone) reception at the lighthouse is good but only the O2 and Vodaphone networks currently work on Fair Isle - whatever your operator may say!
- You will not be charged for the nights you have been unable to reach Fair Isle due to bad weather but extra nights stayed will be charged at the standard rate
- Dogs are not generally allowed as the lighthouse is in open sheep country
