Lerwick - Scalloway Castle And Lerwick

Begin your visit to Shetland with a brief orientation tour or Lerwick. Before arriving at Scalloway Castle, built in 1600 by Patrick Stewart; the Earl of Orkney and Shetland. Inside they have interpretive displays on the Castle’s history to explore and enjoy at your leisure (your guide will be available to answer any of your questions). There will also be the opportunity to visit the neighbouring Shetland Woolen Mill where guests can buy real Shetland knitwear – a wonderful gift or momento of Shetland craft.

Depart Scalloway and drive north through Tingwall Calley, passing the Law Ting Holm – once the seat of the ‘Althing’ or ancient parliament. Arrive at the Shetland Jewellery workshop for a guided tour to discover the unique Shetland designs which have influences of Norse Celtic history. There will of course be a chance to buy any of the pieces on sale here.

Finally, return to Lerwick by passing through Kergord which is Shetland’s largest area of trees, before arriving back at the port.
