You might wonder where is Lerwick? The capital of the Shetland Islands is located 60 degrees north between Norway and the north coast of Scotland and is the perfect starting point for exploring the rest of Shetland.
Head north for a weekend break or holiday in Lerwick and explore this pretty harbour town. Wander around the quirky lanes made famous by Jimmy Perrez in the BBC Shetland TV series. Don’t miss the headland of the Knab and its stunning coastal views.
There are some great 21st century attractions and plenty of things to do too in Lerwick. Step back in time at the Iron Age broch of Clickimin, spot seabirds and seals while on a wildlife boat tour around Bressay or enjoy traditional Shetland music. Support local businesses in Da Street, which has some great independent shops, with everything from authentic knitwear to local crafts and gifts, and a vibrant restaurants and bars scene.
