Visiting FIBO in 2015

Thinking of visiting Fair Isle?

If you'd like to come and stay at FIBO then:

* Contact us on 01595 760258 or to let us know the dates you’d like to visit, you pay nothing at this stage, but we’ll hold the room for you whilst you organise your transport.

* Arrange your transport to Fair Isle with either DirectFlight on 01595 840246 or the Good Shepherd ferry on 01595 760363.
The DirectFlight summer timetable is available here.
Shetland inter-island ferry timetables are displayed here. The Good Shepherd runs from Grutness to Fair Isle on Tuesday, Thursday (note: every alternate week the sailing is to Lerwick instead of Grutness) and Saturday until late September when the timetable is reduced to Tuesday only.

* Arrange your transport to Shetland with either Northlink ferries (sailing from Aberdeen to Lerwick) 0845 6000449 or any of the airlines that fly to Sumburgh from a variety of UK airports.

* Get back in touch with us to let us know that your transport is organised and we will take a deposit, confirm your booking and send you information about your visit.

With returning seabirds, migrants and early flowers (and often some of the finest weather of the year) why not get in early and enjoy this fabulous offer at a stunning time of year.

August discount:                   Early August sees plenty of Puffins still around and the peak of our Storm Petrel ringing, with more migrant birds appearing as the month progresses, often including some early autumn rarities. August is often the best month for the chance of seeing dolphins and whales offshore, whilst the island’s flowers add extra interest.

Rufous-tailed Robin, Chestnut-eared Bunting, Siberian Rubythroats, Black-faced Bunting, Harlequin, Brown Shrike, Savannah Sparrow, Dusky Thrush, Rock Thrush, Steppe Grey Shrike, Rufous Turtle Dove, Blyth’s Pipit, Blackpoll Warbler and several Pine Buntings are just some of the headline birds from late October on Fair Isle, whilst there can be impressive falls of thrushes, finches, Woodcock and other common species to enjoy as well as good selection of scarcities. Why not visit at what might be the best time for you to find your own mega.
