The island of Unst is part of the North Isles of the Shetland Islands in Scotland. The third largest island in Shetland, it is the northernmost inhabited island of the British Isles. The island is mostly grassland with beautiful coastal cliffs and is popular for Muness Castle, the boat museum and heritage centre. However, as beautiful as such rural landscapes can be to explore, they can also prove quite dangerous if they are not well looked after.
