60 North Magazine
A quarterly publication which covers stories about all aspects of life in Shetland - bringing you inspiration, interesting information and stunning photography.
Welcome to the Autumn edition of 60 North!
As Alastair Hamilton writes, Autumn in Shetland is a treat for all the senses. It is a time of rapid change with those summer days, when sunset flows imperceptibly into dawn, quite quickly becoming a wonderful memory. We’ll enjoy the first of the proper gales as a North Atlantic depression sweeps across the islands but we’ll also get a glimpse of the first Northern Lights.
Autumn in Shetland is a very sociable season with many fantastic festivals and events taking place across the isles. This is the season to get the woollens out and participate in Shetland Wool Week, which is now in its fifth year, it has become a real institution for wool lovers and knitting enthusiasts from around the globe. There are many interesting classes and workshops and some pretty special venues this year. Who wouldn’t like to knit onboard a restored Tall Ship, or at the newly opened Sumburgh Head lighthouse?
Autumn is the time when you can also sample some of Shetland’s fine produce – from lamb to Shetland Black potatoes or superb mussels. Shetland Food Fair in November is sure to tempt the taste buds and Marian Armitage’s new cook book will provide the inspiration and recipes to do some cooking with local ingredients.
Autumn in Shetland is lovely – from late August, when the hills turn pink and purple with heather, to November when, after enjoying a brisk walk on fresh air, you can light a peat fire and cosy up with a good book or in a company of friends.
So enjoy this beautiful season and our ‘hairst’ issue!
