Getting To Shetland

The Shetland Islands lie on the 60th line of Latitude North, as far up as Alaska, but with a climate much more akin to the rest of the UK.

Northlink FerryTransport links to the islands are excellent, with daily direct flights to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Inverness airports, with onward connections to other UK and international airports. During the summer months, direct flights are also available to Bergen.

An overnight passenger ferry to and from Aberdeen operates on a daily basis.
