Letters / That would be fun!

A cycle path from Scalloway to Tingwall makes marginally more sense than one between Lerwick and Tingwall. What is it about the big T, has it now replaced Lerwick as the centre of the universe?

When you consider that the campsite in Asta cost nearly a million quid and that it is built on land leased for just nine years, it needs to make £100,000 profit per year just to break even.

Also, they must be one of the very few (only) campsites in the UK not to allow dogs.

Surely, it would make more financial and human wellbeing sense to construct a suspension bridge between Heylor over Ronas Voe and up Ronas Hill. Maybe even a ski lift for the winter season or a zipwire? That would be fun!

Our great outdoors is starting to look like scenes from Bladerunner. Live long and prosper Northmavine!
