The islands were included in a list with places such as Mexico, Vietnam, the Dominican Republic and the up and coming Slovenia.

Speaking about Shetland, Conde Nast said: “The rich soil and pristine sea ensure a cornucopia of natural ingredients, drawing chefs and curious foodies to these remote, sea-battered shores.”

Described as a “foodie hotspot”, the island’s produce is highlighted while local restaurant The Dowry was cited at the place to go for fluffy bannocks and Reestit mutton soup as well as pickled herring, plump scallops and “tennis-ball-sized Scotch eggs”.

While the 40th Shetland Folk Festival and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s beefed-up Shorewatch scheme are also named as part of the draw for visiting the islands next year.
