Shetland Islands

Explore the Shetland Islands

The Shetland Islands are a unique destination in Scotland. The islands form a group of over a hundred islands, some eighty kilometers northeast of mainland Scotland. Because the islands are so northern, there are not only Scottish but also Norwegian influences and you will also find traces of the Viking past. 15 of the islands are inhabited and in total only about 22,000 people live in the remaining islands. It is the place to enjoy the rugged untouched nature.

Things to do

A visit to Shetland can easily be combined with a visit to the Orkney Islands or a holiday in Aberdeen.

During your stay in Aberdeen you can take a ferry to Lerwick, the capital of the Shetland Islands. This is also a ferry with overnight stay. Ideal, because if you travel at night, you can make the most of your days to explore the area. You will leave in the evening and arrive in Lerwick the next morning.
