Silversea Luxury Cruises A LERWICK SHETLAND ISLANDS

LERWICK SHETLAND ISLANDS

Adrift between the Scottish and Norwegian coasts, the craggy Shetland Islands form the most northerly point of the British Isles. Sprawling across 100 islands, connected by sandy bridges and crisscrossing ferries, explore the highlights of this scenic archipelago outpost. With incredible Neolithic history, spanning 5,000 years of human heritage, these islands, which sit just shy of the Arctic Circle, are an isolated and immense treasure trove of history and thrilling scenery. Look out over dramatic coastline from atmospheric Iron Age towers. View more

Sweeping, windswept beaches and wisps of sand connect islands and rugged cliffs - stand back as the sounds of the waves smashing against the shore and calling gulls fills the air. The islands are also home to some of the most adorable four-legged creatures you’ll ever meet, the diminutive and wavy-fringed, Shetland Ponies who roam the hills and reach a maximum size of 42 inches. Don't be fooled, though, they are amongst the strongest and toughest of all breeds. Their existence here points to Viking history, as local horses bred with ponies brought ashore by Norse settlers, creating the lovable crossbreed that is an icon of these islands today. The towering Broch of Mousa is perhaps Europe’s best-preserved Iron Age building - and one of the Shetland's finest brochs - a series of round, stone towers, believed to have been constructed around 100 BC. Seals and birdlife ensure that the isolated islands are always well-populated with life - and you can embark on hikes to discover their coastal homes. Lerwick is the islands’ capital, and there's a charming welcome on offer, as you arrive before the waterfront of stone buildings, which cascade down to the shore.

Jarlshof

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate one-hour drive south to Jarlshof. Unearthed in the winter of 1896 by a violent storm, this archaeological site spans more than 4,000 years, and offers a unique insight into life during the Stone Age,late-Bronze Age, Iron Age, Pictish Era, Norse Era, and the Middle Ages. The remains of these settlements are sprawled over a low green promontory by the sea. With your guide, explore oval-shaped Bronze Age houses, Iron Age broch and wheelhouses, Viking long houses, a Medieval farmstead, and a 16th-century Laird's House.

Hoswick

Next, drive to nearby Hoswick. Upon arrival in this small historic village, a stop is made at the Hoswick Visitor Centre. Here, learn about the history and culture of Shetland through interpretative displays and by observing the traditional knitting skills of the islanders. You may also purchase an original Shetland garment from the wide variety of Shetland wool items for sale in the knitwear shops.


Scenic Mainland Drive

Leaving Hoswick, commence the 30-minute drive back to the pier. Along the way, pass by small agricultural areas where sheep farming is important. See the distinctive black-and-brown Shetland sheep grazing in pastures enclosed by neat dry-stone walls, and small crofting communities nestled on narrow peninsulas near the inlets of the sea. Peat is now rarely used in Shetland to heat homes but as you cross the moors en route to the pier in Lerwick, you pass by the areas where it is still cut .


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, with rough, uneven paths at Jarlshof and a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair as not all Jarlshof is accessible due to narrow paths. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes are recommended. Due to local average temperatures, the coaches are air-cooled.

Scenic Western Shetland

Lerwick, Clickimin Broch, and Scalloway Castle and Museum

En route, a photo stop is made at the Clickimin Broch, a drystone hollow-walled structure with surrounding buildings dating from the Iron Age. Upon arrival in the Old Town of Scalloway, there is free time to explore the ancient Scalloway Castle, built around 1600, and the fantastic local Museum. There will also be some time for shopping and independent exploration.

Carol's Ponies, Wormadale Hill and Whiteness Voe

Next, re-board your coach for a drive along the edge the lovely Loch of Tingwall, where a stop is made at Carol's Ponies. Here, you can learn about and photograph the small, yet beautiful, Shetland ponies. Afterwards, re-board your coach and head back towards Lerwick, with a stop atop Wormadale Hill for splendid panoramic views across the waters of Whiteness Voe.

Lerwick, Catamaran, Underwater Camera, Marine Life

Depart the pier for the short walk (or a short bus transfer) to your awaiting, twin-engine catamaran. After receiving your safety and boating instructions, embark the comfortable catamaran, which features lots of interior and exterior space for viewing Shetland's spectacular seabird and seal colonies.

Lerwick, Mavis Grind and Northmavine

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive towards Northmavine, the northernmost part of the mainland of Shetland, via the North Road, Strand Loop, Girlsta, Voe, Brae, and Mavis Grind, which is approximately 35 yards (about 32 metres) wide at its narrowest point. This is significant not only because it is the gateway to Northmavine, but it is also said to be the only place in the U.K. where you can toss a stone across land from the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.

Tangwick Haa Museum, Braewick Café and 'The Drongs'

Next, a visit is made to the Tangwick Haa Museum. This 17th-century laird's house features a fascinating collection of artefacts that offer a unique insight into the harsh lifestyle of people living in this remote area during that time.

Upon arrival, take a short optional walk along the clifftop. For scenery and geological forms, few places in Shetland, or perhaps even Britain, rival Eshaness. The ferocity of the Atlantic has contributed to the spectacular geological formations found here, which include sea stacks, natural arches, deep clefts, caves, and cliffs, which are home to an abundance of seabirds. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 400 yards (about 366 metres), at times over uneven and slippery surfaces and slight inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair as the Cliff Top Walk is not accessible. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing in layers with a weatherproof jacket or coat and flat, closed-toe walking shoes from the ship. The coaches utilised on this tour are air-cooled. The tour sequence may vary.

Lerwick, Scalloway Viewpoint, Meal Beach

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Burra via the town centre of Lerwick, capital of Shetland, the Scalloway Viewpoint and a photo stop at Meal Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Shetland. The beach is approximately 300 yards (about 274 metres) away from the car park along a boarded walkway.


Burra Island, Shetland Pony Experience, Pet, Brush and Handle Ponies, Indoor-Rides for Children

One of the smaller Shetland Islands, Burra is connected to the mainland by a series of bridges and the island of Trondra. Upon arrival, proceed to the Shetland Pony Experience.
