Our chalets in Easterhoull, Scalloway, are perfect for a holiday in Shetland - not only do we have brilliant views, but also, an excellent central location.
Shetland is about 70 miles long, from Sumburgh to Unst, so many places worth visiting can be done in a day trip.
Even some of our islands are accessible for a day trip, including Whalsay (25 minute drive to ferry at Laxo from the chalets); Papa Stour (36 minute drive to the ferry at West Burrafirth); Yell (40 minute drive to the ferry at Toft); and Unst, the most northerly island in the UK, can be done in a day with 2 short ferry crossings.
Fetlar, which I have never been to yet, is also possible! The exceptions may be Foula and the Out Skerries as transport to and from these islands is less frequent, and Fair Isle which is further away at 24 miles south of Sumburgh.
Shetland enjoys excellent roads which are very quiet, so exploring the islands is easy. As an extra free service to my valued guests I have now written up suggested days out around Shetland, which will be available in each chalet to use as a guide, so hopefully they be helpful and inspire some adventures!
Have you visited any of these places as a day trip? I’d love to know your favourite Shetland days out, please leave a comment or get in touch to le the know.
