THERE WOULD be many people who associate Shetland with only wind, and rain, with a few extra force 10s thrown in for good measure. Certainly there are a fair few gales: great for blowing away the cobwebs on a wild walk, watching mighty waves batter the cliffs, and drying suitably secured washing in double-quick time.

If we are lucky, there is a spell of weather that delights us and paints the landscape white. This winter we’ve been blessed with some beautifully icy, calm and snowy weather. Many photos have been sent to us for the Facebook cover photo, too many to show. So those photos, along with any other you’d like to share of snowmen, pets and families in the snow, we’ve gathered into a gallery for your viewing pleasure.

You can send your photos to, or share them via Facebook Messenger. If using Messenger, please don’t send more than four until they’ve been replied to, due to a current Facebook quirk. If you provide a short caption that would be helpful, as would an Instagram username if you have one, in case your photo is featured.

Shetland News is asking its many readers to consider start paying for their dose of the latest local news delivered straight to their PC, tablet or mobile phone.

Journalism comes at a price and because that price is not being paid in today’s rapidly changing media world, most publishers - national and local - struggle financially despite very healthy audience figures.

Most online publishers have started charging for access to their websites, others have chosen a different route. Shetland News currently has  over 600 supporters  who are all making small voluntary financial contributions. All funds go towards covering our cost and improving the service further.

  • Bring you the headlines as they happen;
