The most northerly town in the UK, Lerwick is Shetland's main port, ferry terminal and industrial centre as well as the island's capital town. Despite its seeming seclusion from mainland Scotland, Lerwick is actually a bustling town thanks to the large number of workers passing through on their way to or from the North Sea oil rigs. Lerwick is also a popular tourist destination, and the harbour is often vibrant with ferry services, cruise ships, and plenty of yachts during the summer. The town centre of Lerwick is renound as one of the best in Scotland, offering a welcome variety of local shops housed in Victorian architecture along it's cobbled streets, and Lerwick's sea front also contains a wide selection of pubs and restaurants to enjoy.

      Although we slept with one other lady in our cabin, we had a very pleasant trip.

    Excellent Experience -pricey though
    • Aberdeen to Lerwick with NorthLink

      The whole trip is wonderful. Whales and dolphins off the bows. The staff were very friendly, professional, funny and helpful. But it is a great deal of money to take a car and not have a cabin. The restaurant, admittedly not the posh one (I think there was a posh one, but again it cost even more to get in), was adeqauet but pretty uninspiring.
