In Pictures / Shetland winter glory – readers share their best shots

SCHOOL closures, travel disruption, bitterly cold gale force winds and a struggle get the house warm – there are many inconveniences when it comes to experiencing winter weather in Shetland.

But there is clearly also a very different side to it all, as this ‘avalanche’ of photos – sent in by our readers – demonstrates. Many thanks for doing so and apologies for not being able to use every single photo that has been sent.
