The Shetland Isles region
The Shetland Islands are Scotland's most northerly Islands, steeped in ancient history with striking landscapes
and rich wildlife and flora.
The Islands are truly unspoilt and its dramatic coastline offers a contrast of scenery from sandy beaches to rugged cliffs and caves.
The Papa Stour area
The island of Papa Stour was designated a site of scientific interest in 1975 and the sea around it is a marine conservation area. First populated in 3000BC it has traces of prehistoric man with neolithic dwellings, chambered cairns and bronze age burnt mounds and is therefore of great interest to archaeologists. Middle iron age is represented by Muckle and Little Heogan which can be found very close to East Biggins itself.
Papa Stour has 18 species of breeding sea birds including Fulmars,Shags, Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins and many more. The Island also has many seals and otters and there are frequent sightings of harbour porpoises and killer whales.
Papa Stour has 21 miles of rugged coastline with beaches,caves and cliffs, and the house is surrounded by fields with sheep and Shetland ponies.
