Cruises from Lerwick
Lerwick is the capital and main port of the Shetland Islands, Scotland, located more than 160 km off the north coast of mainland Great Britain. Open to shipping in all weathers, it operates around-the-clock. Lerwick has strong ties with Scandinavian countries, particularly Norway, and this is reflected in the street names of the port. Behind the old harbour is the compact town centre made up of one long main street, Commercial Street.
From here narrow lanes rise westwards to the late-Victorian new town. Hay’s Dock was once the centre of Shetland’s fishing industry and boat-building and is now home to the Shetland Museum and Archives.
