Shetland is an archipelago of over 100 islands, of which only 15 are inhabited. The rugged landscape makes Shetland a very interesting place to explore with over 1500 miles of fantastic coastline and superb sea views. There are many natural attractions all around Shetland including the famous Mousa Broch and Jarlshof bronze age site. Shetland is also very proud to have UNESCO Geopark status with fascinating geological history and sites worth visiting.
There are also a number of indoor attractions not to be missed including the Shetland Museum & Archives as well as the many rural museums.
While it is possible to explore Shetland using public transport, some of the most spectacular sites, such as the Eshaness Cliffs, are not easily reached without a car.
