That's it, the cars packed, fuelled and tyres inflated. I shall be setting off from Kentistan this very evening to the far north that is the Shetland Islands where I shall be in residence for one calender month. I shall load the hounds later, collect stroppy teenage son on route and then point the 4.0 litre beast in the direction of Aberdeen. Now, the only bit that I am afeared off is that I have to drive through the Lawless North ... at night ... in the dark ... to get safely to my ferry at Aberdeen. So, where does this godforsaken bandit ridden part of our fair isles begin? What should I be aware of as I pass through the grim industrial(less) north and onward into the land of the skirt wearing murderer? Any tips gratefully accepted.
