stikkit mist


Stikkit mist is a fantastic Shetlan expression that describes low cloud, wandering around our hills, wicks (square shaped bays and islands from April to (usually) September.
On the fifth day of the fourth month, it has reappeared like a veritable diva, washing off blue from a shameless sky and stirring like porridge in a breakfast bowl… It affects everything on Earth – colours, moods, vision – and not least, travellers at airports (!)
Today did not fail.
As the stikkit mist season begins again, be prepared to play invisible and / or borrow sea ways to experience 60N island life… The experience is unique.
Just like its wildlife 🙂
