The Advantages of Self Catering Holidays

There are many advantages to choosing self catering holidays over half-board or all-inclusive, but despite this, many people are put off by the perceived hassle of having to prepare and cook their own food. More often than not, it can actually be much more convenient. Here are some of the advantages of self catering holidays:

-Privacy: One of the biggest advantages of self catering holidays is the privacy it provides, instead of crowding into a busy buffet area and having to pick and choose the food you like, you can make it yourself in the comfort of your self catering accommodation

-Your Pace: Hotels that include all-inclusive and half board options typically have a set time that they serve food, which means having to plan your activities around mealtimes. Self catering holidays gives you the freedom to make what you want to eat, when you want to eat it. 

-Extras: Self catering accommodation comes with fully equipped kitchens and act as their own self contained apartments that offer a cosy feel and usually have televisions, dishwashers, and other modern appliances to make you feel at home. 

Why You Should Visit Shetland

Visiting Shetland is something that should be on everybody's bucket list. Located between Norway and mainland Scotland, Shetland has a rich history and a stunning natural landscape. Here are a few reasons why you should visit Shetland:

-Norse Heritage: The influence that came from Viking invasions is extremely apparent. The majority of place names within Shetland are Norse and there’s evidence of occupation in Jarlshof and Old Scatness, which you can visit and see for yourself. Similarly, every year on the last Tuesday in January, Shetland’s Viking heritage is celebrated with Scotland's biggest fire festival. 

-Exploration: There are a variety of places to explore, including over 100 islands, only 15 of which are inhabited. There's also St Ninian’s Isle, home to the largest active sand tombolo, a range of beaches boasting white and red sands, and Unst, the northernmost inhabited island in Britain. 

-Events: Shetland is home to a variety of events to suit everyone, including the Craft Fair and Wool Week. The Shetland Folk Festival brings together the world's top folk musicians, The Screenplay Film Festival is an offshoot of the Wordplay Literary Festival and brings screenings from some of the best in the industry, just to name a few.
