Tim & Te Jay's, Brooke & Robbie's, Amy & Maya's, and Shelley & Nici's departure times were not shown on screen.

Teams must travel by train to Aberdeen, Scotland. In Aberdeen, teams must get a Ford Focus at the Union Square parking area, which they must drive into a roll-on/roll-off ferry to Lerwick in the Shetland Islands. Once at Lerwick, teams must drive to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, where they must search the station for a puffin mascot, who will give them their next clue.

Teams must drive themselves to the Scalloway Castle in Scalloway, where they must search the castle for their next clue.

Choice A: Pony Up
Teams must cut out 50 blocks of peat from a peat bank, using a special spade called a tusker, which they must then deliver to a farmer, using a Shetland pony loaded with two loads of dried peat. Once they have delivered the loads of peat to the farmer, they will receive their next clue.

Adam & Bethany, Amy & Maya, Misti & Jim, and Shelley & Nici chose this task.

Choice B: Light My Fire
Teams must participate in a traditional fire festival called a Up Helly Aa. First, they must retrieve materials from the DITT Store, before building a traditional viking torch with the satisfaction of a judge at the Up Helly Aa Galley Shed. Once the judge has been satisfied with their torch, they must then present it to a guizer jarl at the Shetland Museum's Hay's Dock, who will light their torch and give them their next clue.

Brooke & Robbie, Keith & Whitney, Kym & Alli, Michael & Scott, and Tim & Te Jay chose this task.

Teams must drive themseves to the Berry Farm in Scalloway, where they must search for a chest containing their next clue.

Teams must act as Shetland Sheepdogs, corralling a flock of sheep through a course and directing them into a pen to receive their next clue from shepherd James, in which their clue is in a form of a Celtic brooch.

Teams must figure out the location of their next Pit Stop through where their Celtic brooch was found, a tombolo in St Ninian's Isle, to check in.

For coming in first place, Misti & Jim won a trip for two to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, provided by Travelocity.
