Overview of your Lerwick tour:

A circular tour through the Shetland mainland takes us to the bay of Tresta to visit the home of mother and daughter team Marion and Amanda, enthusiastic Sheepdog, Pony and Sheep breeders. My old school friend Marion gives the warmest welcome in Shetland! This is the all time favourite tour for my guests and myself too. Learn everything about our native breeds. Be prepared to see Shetland Pony foals! Enjoy spending time (45 mins) with the animals before continuing west to 'The Original Cake Fridge' honesty box for refreshments, situated between the villages of Aith and Voe. If you want to experience remote wilderness then this road is unrivalled in Shetland. Just remember, the sheep have the right of way on this road that the locals refer to as 'The Alps'! This tour stops off at 3 of our most iconic viewpoints along the way and passes the site of the Viking parliament. If you love great scenery, animals, or you are a wool enthusiast, then you will love this friendly tour!

Your Lerwick tour itinerary

·After pickup, we go on a scenic drive of central and west Shetland, where you'll have ample opportunities to take photographs at scenic overlooks. ·We then begin heading out of Lerwick's south road, looking out for our first Shetland ponies en route to a viewpoint overlooking Scalloway on the west side of the mainland. Here we could look over our ancient capital, where history meets modern life with the castle from 1599 alongside a busy modern harbour. ·From here we drive through the Tingwall valley continuing our journey west through the villages of Whiteness and Weisdale, stopping at a hilltop viewpoint in each place. ·Just over the hill from Weisdale we reach Breckenlea Stud, home to the locally bred native animals, where our knowledgeable hosts will share information and answer any questions you have. ·Then we head to Cake Fridge for some sweet treats and enjoy the beautiful hilly landscape along the way before arriving back in town via the north road.
