Hired a car for a few days so decided to drive to see the lighthouse. The scenery from the lighthouse was stunning . We were lucky with the weather so the sea was calm but alas no sightings of whales or dolphins . I would have given this review 5 stars if the museum etc had been open but like a lot of things on this island atm due to COVID 19 it was shut . Having said that definitely worth a visit

I went to look for puffins and ended up purchasing a museum ticket. Very interesting place with a rich history. Thanks to Shetland ranger, Howard, who happened be there that day, I learned a lot about North Atlantic seabirds as well. Really enjoyed this place!

if you time your visit correctly then you have a magnificent chance of seeing puffins , but be aware that if you don't have a head for heights then stay away

Even though we visited in ther middle of winter for Up Helly Aa it was well worth visiting the lighthouse. Unfortunately the cafe wasn't open but we were able to get a hot chocolate from the shop & the visitor centre was open. The old engines for the foghorn are amazing & our kids loved pursuing the button to "sound the horn" in the centre. The views out over the cliffs are spectacular & I would imagine are brilliant for sea-birds during milder seasons. The information about local wildlife is well laid out & interesting. The orca & whale models went down well with our kids. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a great lighthouse to visit on your trip to Shetland. Lots of puffins to see, as well as other sea birds. Beautifully done lighthouse by grandfather of Robert Louis Stephenson. Totally worth the visit. Great grounds to explore, coastal scenery to admire, and a great giftshop, with some wonderful items. Didn't get to try the pastry mobile, but hoping next time I will. Definitely worth a visit!
