More seriously, I had considered Shetland/Faroes, etc but couldn't imagine that someone would bring their children to Shetland on holidays. It would suit a penal colony though...

G'wan ya sore loser - the building on the right was pure Shetland, had ya fooled for sure. What ruled out Shetland for me was the absence of ugly fat burds, skinheids, closed restaurants and "Do not" signs.

My experience of Shitland Shetland was identical - could you have been lost?
