Around and About Herrislea
Tingwall Valley is the site of the ancient Viking Parliament or ‘Ting’, situated on a Holm in the Tingwall Loch which is also full of Brown Trout. Tingwall has its own 9 hole golf course and Shetland full golf course is just a mile away a mile on the other side of the hotel. Down the valley is the ancient Scalloway castle of Earl Patrick Stewart, who enslaved the local population to build his seat. There is also a wonderful small museum next to the castle and much more to do during you visit to Shetland. 17 minutes away there are riding lessons & horse trekking with Icelandic horses.
