Hoswick Visitors Centre is a convenient stop for visitors, located halfway between Lerwick and summer. We have a popular café, a large range of information to help visitors planning their visit to Shetland. A well-stocked shop carries a wide range of locally produced crafts.

Hoswick is a historic little village. The story of the significant 'Hoswick Whale Case' is well described in the Visitors Centre. The Centre was a weaving mill and some of the vintage weaving machinery is displayed. A new outdoor area is being developed which will provide more parking as well as outdoor seating, cycle parking, electric vehicle charging point and information about Shetland, the Geo Park.
