Northmavine Guidebook and online audio guide

Out soon and newly revised for 2018 with our online audio guide for use on your smartphone - 'A Visitors' Quick Guide to Northmavine' - just £5.00

Produced by the Northmavine Tourism Group with the help of Davy Cooper, author and folklorist, the print publication is a high-quality, full colour 36-page booklet packed full of all the things to see and do in Northmavine. Compiled by locals who know all the 'must-see' places to visit!

And it comes complete with free access to an online audio guide where you can stop off at a location and listen to a brief guide on your smartphone or tablet.

The printed guide comes with the original introduction by legendary storeyteller and folklorist Davy Cooper, who, more than 30 years ago, was given a summer job killing roadside weeds in Northmavine and spent six weeks wandering the highways and byways of the most northerly mainland parish of Shetland. This unorthodox introduction led to a lifetime love affair with Northmavine. As Davy says, "The place captured my heart and my imagination and I have been roaming Northmavine ever since. "

"This little booklet contains 72 places of interest in Northmavine but there are so many beautiful spots that not even a full book could do justice to them all. Regard this as a taster, a small sample to start you on your own explorations. From the magnificent natural amphitheatre of the Grind O' Da Navir to the poignancy of the deserted fishermen's lodges at Fethaland, Northmavine offers the best of Shetland's heritage both natural and cultural."

The guide has sections on Sullom, Ollaberry, Hillswick, Eshaness, Ronas Hill and North Roe and Lochend, with a numbered outline map for each area corresponding to each place of interest.

In the centre of the booklet there is a 'Photo Pullout' double page spread with stunning views, as well as the flowers and birds of Northmavine. There is also a useful Information section at the end of the booklet, with details of accommodation, cafés & restaurants, community halls, garage services, guided walks, playparks, Post Offices, shops, and - most important - public toilets.
