This walk was close to our self-catering place so we took a late afternoon stroll. It was a beautiful sunny day but quite windy. The views were absolutely stunning. We started from the free golf course area. I’d love to see someone playing golf in...More

Just on the edge of the town centre this walk is worth doing for the great views over to Bressay and south.

Great find - walk south out of the town along the coast and join the pathway around the headland - spectacular views across the water, birds, cliffs etc. Probably only takes just over an hour to complete which brings you back in the town centre.

Route pamphlet available from Lerwick Tourist Information Buro near pier, centre of Lerwick. Instructions are very clear. Provide a bit of history about all the things visible along the route. Great to use when arriving in Lerwick for the first time, especially.

We arrived by cruise ship after a quite crossing of the North Sea. Did not have any activity planed except to walk around the town (and purchase wool!). The walk was easy for us and we met locals as well as fellow cruisers :)

Loved Lerwick, Scotland in the Shetland Islands! Our cruise ship spent the day there. The first thing we did was take a wonderful walk toward the Lerwick Cemetery. Love old, old historical cemeteries. On the way, we walked a little through the residential neighborhood. Very...More
