The capital of Scotland's Shetland Islands, Lerwick is a colourful and welcoming place. Local heritage and traditions are very much alive, while Lerwick offers accommodation to suit all tastes and needs.
Boats and mysterious brochs
The New Shetland Museum and Archives building hosts an impressive Boat Hall, charting the development of boats in Shetland. There is also a floating collection outside. Indeed, a strong connection to maritime culture can be felt all across the archipelago and these fascinating exhibits help visitors to better understand it.
Brochs are circular and hollow-walled Iron Age structures unique to Scotland. While you can visit the Broch of Clickimin in Lerwick, the best-preserved is the one of Mousa. Make sure to check the ferry schedule to the island on which the broch is located.
A world of wildlife
If you're a family that loves animals, be sure to take the boat cruise to the Isle of Noss where you will be greeted by an array of beautiful species. Hike along the sandstone cliffs that line the coast - depending on the season you'll be able to spot seals, gannets, puffins, guillemots, kittiwakes and otters.
Some of the most famous and cutest residents of the archipelago are the Shetland ponies. They are stubborn, strong and highly intelligent and can be spotted throughout the islands.
Up Helly Aa
Norse influences have certainly made their mark on Shetlands life. While there are several events aiming to preserve these roots, Up Helly Aa has reached a far higher level.
Occurring on the last Tuesday of every January, it sees more than 800 men dressed as Vikings set a Viking galley on fire to mark the end of the Yule season. Expect eccentric costumes, plenty of singing and a festive atmosphere.
