Laurie Goodlad

Languages:

I'm a born and bred Shetlander with a passion for our islands history and culture. At 32 years old I have the honour of being Shetland's youngest green badge guide! 

I live in Lerwick with my husband and two young kids. Until recently I worked at the Shetland Museum & Archives as a curatorial assistant. I now edit Shetland Life magazine when I'm not guiding. 

I love to show people our beautiful islands both in person and online - why not follow me on Instagram or check out my blog for inspiration.
