A microadventure through Britain's most remote islands by folding bicycle and folding packraft.
This is part of my Year of Microadventure project: tiny.cc/microadventure

Apologies for some dodgy bits of sound in this video: something weird happened in the conversion process and I don't have time to fix it as I'm heading to the mountains tomorrow.
Also I don't know why two blank minutes have appeared at the end. Life's too short for perfection!
The Shetland Isles lie 100 miles north of the British mainland. We travelled there on the overnight ferry in the week of the summer solstice and then rode and paddled from the south of the islands all the way north.
