A photo of the return flight from Fair Isle aboard a small Britten Norman Islander aircraft (G-SICA).

The view out of the right window is looking across the Minn beach in Burra over to the Clift Hills of Shetland’s south mainland.

You need to be prepared to be flexible and patient with travel times when going to Fair Isle. I’ve been lucky on previous trips, but on this occasion it was my fourth attempt before I got home. Monday morning - mist in Fair Isle; Monday afternoon - mist at Tingwall airport; Tuesday morning - mist in the middle between Tingwall and Fair Isle; Tuesday afternoon - perfect flight home.
