Lerwick - Private Visit to Lunna House

Head north out of Lerwick today passing Dales Voe, Tingwall, Girlsta Loch and Nesting before arriving at the scenic township of Vidlin. After a brief photostop here, continue on to Lunna. Here you will be met by the owners to visit the private Historic Lunna House. Enjoy a special guided tour and learn of the historical significance of the house, built by the first Shetland Lord Chamberlain in 1663, and the more recent history and in particular it's role as the Norwegian Resistance base during the war. Archaeology in the vicinity goes back as far as 4,000 years: see the remnants of a ruined broch (iron age tower about 2,000 BC) at the base of the hill from the house; a tiny ruined monastery dating from 1710, and a ramp that goes down to the sea that was constructed by the Vikings between 400 and 800 AD, plus, of course, Shetland's oldest working Kirk (Church) (about 1750).

Enjoy tea with the owners and learn what it is like to live in such a remote location.

Returning south after your visit to Lunna, return to your ship at Victoria Pier in Lerwick
