North Mainland

Meander through Lerwick the only town in Shetland, dating from the 1600s, as you travel to the North West corner of the Shetland Mainland. 

Head North through peat and heather covered landscape to the picturesque community of Voe, with its Scandinavian influence.  Onwards through Brae, crossing Mavis Grind where the North Sea almost meets the Atlantic Ocean. 


Northwards still, the scenery becoming more spectacular with every mile, viewing some of Shetlands aquaculture industry.  Stop for a photo of the Drongs, a group of spectacular sea stacks, and continue to the Tangwick Haa Museum. 

Back on the coach and onwards for an optional cliff-top walk at the Eshaness Lighthouse where fire and ice of volcano and glacier have forged Shetland`s world-famous geology.
