The rural agricultural community on the Shetland Islands has a long and prestigious history of rearing Britain’s most northernly native sheep breed and collecting its high-quality wool. This is part of a practice known as crofting, which is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands.
