Planting trees in cold maritime site

I intend to make a small plantation of mixed hardwoods in the North 
of Shetland (just above 60 deg N). I am giving them a little defence 
from the strong prevailing south westerly winds by building a stone 
wall around the site. However one of the problems is that the site is 
right by the sea, and so I am looking for suggestions as to the best 
group of species to plant. Also any other help that I can give them 
to get started.
Does anyone have any ideas?
