What’s on Mainland Shetland

Mainland Shetland is the biggest of all the islands and has something for everyone, including walking, windsurfing, fishing, cycling, beach-combing, birdwatching, scuba-diving, sailing, whale-watching, surfing or kayaking. There are major archaeological sites to visit, a spectacular coastline to explore and, with a variety of events and festivals held throughout the year, a vibrant cultural life to enjoy. And because Shetland enjoys 19 hours of daylight in the middle of summer, you’ll be able to take full advantage of everything on offer.
