Other highlights of the calendar include the popular country show and the newly established Shetland Reel music festival. The island is home to approximately 600 local residents, with Baltasound as the population centre. There is a good variety of local amenities including Baltasound Junior High School which has nursery, primary and secondary departments. School transport is provided by Shetland Islands Council.
