Things to do
Aith is on the Westside – the sunny side of Shetland. It is a good central location for touring mainland Shetland and is only 21 miles from Lerwick. Aith and the surrounding area are great for walking, birdwatching, seeing wildlife and fishing.
The West Mainland Leisure Centre is only a few hundred metres away from the house and offers excellent sporting and leisure facilities. You can play short tennis, hockey and badminton in the main hall; have a game on the squash court; work out in the fitness suite; enjoy swimming in the pool or just relax in the steam and sauna room.
Michaelswood is a wonderful wooded area planted in memory of the late Michael Ferrie, a talented young musician from Aith, which delights young and old alike. There are over 60 different species of shrubs and trees to wander through - a novelty in this treeless landscape - a Philosopher’s Trail, picnic area, wildlife pond, bird hide and lots for children to do. The pirate ship, “peerie hoose”, teddy bears’s picnic area and car mat with all vehicles provided make it one of Shetland’s most child friendly attractions and well worth a visit.
Britain’s most northerly RNLI lifeboat, a 17 metre, long-range “Severn” class boat is stationed at Aith Pier next to the shore station. The Aith Lifeboat Gala Day in June is a fun day out for all the family. The Aith regatta which includes both sailing and rowing races is held in July.
The Aith Marina is a picturesque area for a stroll to view local and visiting boats or maybe watch fish being landed after a local fishing competition or “eela”. You can also book to go on boat trips with Simmer Dim Charters and St Magnus Bay Charters.
The waterfall at Lunklett is just north of Aith in East Burrafirth. A path leads up the burn to the waterfall, where heather and honeysuckle bloom in summer, onto some excellent hillwalking and splendid views of the area.
