Overview of your Lerwick tour:

Come on a popular and comprehensive tour of the best of Shetland's south mainland, which boasts amazing scenery, seabird colonies and fascinating history. This is the tour for you, especially if you only have one day in Shetland and have a variety of interests. I will take you past the oldest houses in Lerwick (The Lodberries), which are built out into the sea. Here you will see the home of the fictional detective Jimmy Perez from the drama series 'Shetland' which is in fact owned and inhabited by my first cousin! I can tell you extra stories about the home from my family's perspective! Also, let me take you to St. Ninians Isle, the best example of a shell sand tombolo in the British Isles. The beach there is breathtaking, and you'll have time for a short walk on the sand if you wish! We'll also take in astonishing viewpoints, marvelat a seal beach, bird cliffs, a lighthouse, shopping, food and a view across the water to the uninhabited island of Mousa where the world's best preserved Broch can be found.
