Kittywake Tours will pick cruise guests up from their port and drop them back after approximately a 6 hour tour. The tour price will include any entry fees and lunch/coffee stops.

Scalloway - We explore the ancient capital of Shetland, Scalloway, which includes the castle built in 1599 by Earl Patrick Steward, the half-nephew of Mary Queen of Scots. Scalloway was also the operational base for the 'Shetland Bus', a resistance movement against the Nazi occupation of Norway in WW2.​

Trondra and Burra - These isles are connected to the mainland by road bridges and the scenery is quite breathtaking. There are beautiful beaches, Shetland ponies and examples of traditional fishing and crofting communities. ​

Tingwall - One of Shetland's three narrow limestone valleys evident by the luscious, green grass and abundance of wild flowers in the summer. We pass the Ting Holm, which for over three centuries hosted Shetland's parliament. The Loch of Tingwall, the church and the Manse are the locations which tell my favourite story from one inspiring family from the past

Whiteness and Weisdale - Spectacular views over the Whiteness and Weisdale Voes. The remains of ruined croft houses in the Upper Weisdale valley bare testimony to the tragedy of the 19th Century clearances; sheep in, people out. ​

Kergord - Home of Shetland's forest - don't blink when we pass through this as we might miss it.

As with any tour in Shetland, flexibility is inbuilt, not least because of the weather. Although there are no long walks on this tour, it is advisable that visitors have adequate footwear and warm, waterproof clothing.
