Lerwick - the Knab and Clickiminbroich

Hello! We will be in Lerwick this summer for one day on a cruise. We want to walk from the Pier southward around the Knab and up to Clickimin Broich. Then, back to the pier. About how Long (just strolling and taking - we hope - lots of pictures)? We are not necessarily planing to walk all the way around the Loch.

Do you have a few tips for me?

Thank you in advance!

About 30 minutes to the Loch and another 30 back. Plan to spend another 5 minutes at the Loch is enough.

You can do the Fort in less than 5 minutes. Plan to have more time in the Fort Cafe, the best fish and chips in the world.

You will be shocked at what the place had turned into these days. Ugly budge parked right in town spoiling the view filled with drunk oilers looking for a fight.

Thank you for this Information. I must say....Things have changed. and let's face it. Oilers do get bored. I assume they don't have many Hobbies...Well, we'll see.

We want to enjoy Lerwick, even if it is just for a day. Maybe they will be out working when we get into port. I can't see. Are the barges near the cruise port...or at the cruise port. Not a nice site, heh?

They are right in the middle of town, you can't miss them.

I nearly drove over two drunk oilers this evening. They were so drunk that they did not notice my car 2 ft away.
