Small group tours, tailor made to the needs and interests of my visitors. Small group allows informality, flexibility and a degree of intimacy.

Discover Shetland is owned and managed by local Shetland resident David Malcolm. He can take small groups (2-4 persons), and is ideally placed to give you a personal, informal and intimate experience of the islands. Discover Shetland offers the following prescribed tours: Central Mainland; South Mainland; North Mainland; Island of Unst, but David is flexible and will make every effort to adapt tours according to your needs and ambitions.

At the time of booking, David will discuss with you any special interests you may have and seek to weave these into your unique tour experience.

David is a retired family doctor who has lived with his wife Priscilla in Shetland for 36 years. He is author of 'A Photographic Guide to Shetland's Wild Flowers' (3rd edition 2012); co-author of 'A Photographic Guide to Shetland's Geology' (2015); author of 'A Photographic Guide to Shetland's History' (2018), all books published by The Shetland Times Ltd.
