Island Trails Tour

Local Guide James Tait will be providing tours for visitors who want to get out and about from Lerwick during Up-Helly-Aa Week. No Tour on the big day itself for obvious reasons! The route will be around the South Mainland and Scalloway areas, the exact itinerary will depend on the January weather but James plans to indlude the following:

Jarlshof Archaeological site (including remains of Viking Longhouses)

St. Ninian's Isle & shell sand tombolo

Scalloway Museum & ruined castle

View the site of Shetland's Old Norse/ Viking Parliament at Tingwall

See Shetland ponies & native Shetland sheep

Hear stories from Shetland's history & folklore.

Tours depart outside the Visitor Information Centre on Market Cross Lerwick. Limited spaces so prior booking is essential! Lunch will be at Sumburgh Hotel (not included in price)
