Where to stay in Shetland?

There is no better place than Scalloway to base your Shetland holiday or business trip. Scalloway is centrally located on the Shetland mainland and only a few minutes drive to the main town of Lerwick on the east coast. The beautiful sheltered harbour is a busy port but the streets of Scalloway quiet and picturesque. Scalloway has more trees than most Shetland settlements, making for sheltered leafy lanes than lead down to the waterfront and Main Street with grocery shops open until late each evening.

Getting around Shetland

As well as being close to Lerwick, Scalloway is 35 minutes drive to the north and south extremes of Shetland, and 45 minutes to the west. The north isles are accessed by ferry journeys from the north mainland to Yell then Unst. Whalsay is accessed by ferry from the north east. Scalloway is also just 10 minutes drive from the inter-island airport at Tingwall, from where you can get to the stunning isles of Fair Isles, the birders mecca, and Foula with some of the highest cliffs in the UK.
