Lerwick, Shetland Luxury Cruises

Lerwick is the capital and main seaport of the Shetland Islands, located over 100 miles north of the Scottish mainland. As the Shetland Islands' only town and home to the majority of its population, the area is a cosmopolitan hub of activity and bustling seaport, vital to the island's trade and commerce. The town is home to an extensive range of fun-filled leisure and entertainment facilities designed to keep visitors happy and occupied whilst staying in the region. The town's historic waterfront contains a variety of wonderful sights including a quaint promenade, large visiting yachts and fishing boats going about their daily business. Despite the Shetland Island's secluded ambience, the town of Lerwick has a collection of lively bars, shops and nightclubs to entertain the throngs of tourists hoping to experience the diverse lifestyle of Shetland residents.

Sightseeing in Lerwick

Lerwick is a fantastic town in which to take a stroll and observe the area's stunning scenery alongside a collection of fascinating and historic landmarks.

The Shetland Museum and Archives

Situated at Hay's Dock in Lerwick, the Shetland Museum and Archives was officially opened by Queen Sonya of Norway and the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay on the 31st May 2007. This intriguing museum is dedicated to the history and culture of Shetland, focusing on the island's early agriculture, seafaring culture and folklore. Fascinating artefacts on display include a range of items, from old clothing and garments to large boats and vessels.

Fort Charlotte

Fort Charlotte is a majestic five-sided military fort, located in the centre of Lerwick. The original fort was built in 1652 during the first Anglo-Dutch War, although very little is known of this structure. The second incarnation of the fort was constructed under the orders of Charles II, on the same site as the first, at the beginning of the second Anglo-Dutch War by Robert Mylne. It was eventually burnt down whilst unmanned during the third Anglo-Dutch War. The current structure was erected in 1781 and was named after the wife of George III, who was king at the time of its construction.

The Böd of Gremista

Located towards the northern end of Lerwick, the Böd of Gremista is a fantastic example of an 18th century Shetland fishing booth, also known as a böd. The quaint building was constructed in 1780 by local landowner and manager of the Gremista fishing station Arthur Nicholson. The structure has an interesting history, as it was the birthplace of Arthur Anderson, the co-founder of Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, nowadays known as P&O.

Shopping in Lerwick

Lerwick has a diverse range of excellent shops and markets located in the town centre. Visitors will find stores selling all kinds of gifts, souvenirs and general amenities including fashion items, music, confectionary, alcohol and fishing supplies.

Eating out in Lerwick

A selection of quaint and welcoming restaurants and cafes are littered across Lerwick and the Shetland Islands, offering guests a range of locally caught seafood dishes and a variety of alternative international cuisine.
