Reviewed 27 June 2014

Very central and easy to get to in Lerwick (on the main shopping street). Knowledgeable staff who can book trips for you & organise accommodation. They even phoned a local cafe to see if they were open on a particular day. Call early on in your holiday and pick up the leaflets which cover all the different regions of Shetland. It will ensure that you get to see all there is to see.

“Really helpful...”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

if you're here only for a short stay or even longer. Situated slap bang in the middle of Lerwick. If you need info about local entertainments or a ferry schedule, this is your spot.
