Long before he set foot on the islands, Simon King fell in love with Shetland. This extraordinary northern wilderness is home to otters and vast seabird colonies, but it was a chance encounter with a killer whale that compelled him to spend a year there discovering the wildlife and the warmth of community in these islands battered by the ocean.
