Lerwick is an ancient seaport on the east coast of the Shetland Mainland in Scotland, home to over six thousand eight hundred people. Once raided by the Vikings, now the busy harbour sees ferries that travel to Kirkwall, Orkneys, Bressay, the Fair Isle, Norway, and Iceland. The area is beautiful, wide open spaces and breath stealing views, for a touch of history Scalloway Castle was built in 1600, the exhibition tells an interesting tale. The Shetland Museum will explain the history of these magical isles, with three thousand exhibits over two floors. Or possibly 17th Century Fort Charlotte will be top of the list with guns pointing out over the Bressay Sound. The Bod Of Gremista is a restored Fishing Bod and links with the P & O shipping company, or how about Tingwall Agricultural Museum which has intriguing items on display all housed in an 18th Century grain store. For something special sail to Noss National Nature Reserve, this craggy Isle with cliffs and sandy beaches has an amazing array of Sea Bird colonies, Puffins, and Seals. Time it right and the Up-Helly-Aa Festival in Lerwick will see Vikings marching in a torch lit procession through the streets, which ensures memories of the ever lasting kind.
