Postage

We deliver to all addresses within the UK and Europe.  

We will always aim to deliver to you as promptly as possible.

***   Your package is being despatched from one of the most remote locations in the UK – and most of our packages will have a journey via air/sea and land to get to you.  We use Royal Mail and Parcelforce for the despatch of all orders.  The service we use for your parcel will depend on its weight and also things like prevailing weather conditions - for example if we know the boat is not sailing because of bad weather, we will use a postage service which goes on the plane. Because of our remoteness, Royal Mail and Parcelforce quote us an average delivery time of 72 hours for delivery to the UK and 3-5 days to Europe.  This delivery time can be longer when the weather is bad - particularly during the winter months (Nov to March).  If the weather is so bad that the ferry or the plane cannot leave Shetland, your parcel will stay on Shetland until it's safe for the boat or the plane to leave.  This is part of island life and part of living in one of the most exposed and dramatic places in the UK.  So, please build extra time into the ordering process if you need your order by a particular date, particularly in the winter months.  ***
