Jarlshof and Scenic Mainland Drive: Nice, peaceful, relaxing ride through the town of Lerwick, along a little bit of the coast. We made a short stop at a little village where the Shetland Wool Week celebration was happening! Visited some knitting shops and a little visitor center. The highlight of the excursion was to the Archaeological site of Jarlshof on the tip of the coast. My description wouldn't do it justice---you need to read about it. Our tour guide, Willis, was wonderful. The view of the coast and the ocean was awesome! There is a little museum and gift shop.........Another scenic ride back to Lerwick. Before we boarded the ship, there was plenty of time to browse the waterfront, grab a bite to eat, and go shopping. I bought yarn! Read Less

Lerwick is a small town that appears to be geared towards cruise ship tourists. The people were very friendly and the place is lovely, but not much to do except wander the streets and visit the shops. We did however find a cute little pub where we had a beer, and found that half the people from our ship were either there or trying to get in.....oh well, great minds think alike! Read Less

The included tour does a good job of showing Lerwick. There isn't a lot there, but it was a good experience nonetheless.

The bus tour of part of the island, with stops to see Shetland ponies, was interesting, and we enjoyed our brief walk around the town and bought some souvenirs.

We took the Shetland Ponies and Scalloway tour and it was pretty enjoyable. My wife liked meeting the ponnies and I liked the history of Scalloway Castle and the Shetland Bus. At the end of the tour, we both enjoyed stopping at a local pub, "The Lounge" for a few pints. What was to be a 1-pint stop tunred out to be a 4-pint stop. We had a really good time chatting with the bartender, some locals and a few other passengers. Read Less

We joined friends on a private tour with Red's Orkney Tours by David Hamilton. Could not have been any better, his knowledge of the area and sites was exceptional! We both recommend him highly.

We opted not to take a tour here but took the shuttle bus from the port to the center of town and walked back to the ship stopping along the way. It was Sunday, not much open, but the museum was excellent.

We did a ship excursion to Jarlshof. We had a good guide and it was a very interesting day. We were dropped off in Lerwick at the end of the tour. Didn’t have much time left, but were able to have a quick walk around the town before catching the last free shuttle back to the ship dock. The Shetland Islands stop exceeded expectations. Read Less

We toured on our own in the morning and saw the Broch of Clickimin, some of the stained glass windows at TownHall and the Shetland Museum. We had lunch at Hay's Dock which I would highly recommend! in the afternoon we took an NCL excursion: Scalloway Castle and Shetland ponies. It was good although I was somewhat disappointed with the Shetland pony portion as it was just a stop for 15 minutes or so at the side of the road. Overall, Lerwick is an excellent port and I would highly recommend it even though we visited in pouring rain! Read Less

In the Shetlands, we took a nature walk on the trails of uninhabited Mousa Island, which we enjoyed thoroughly. The scenery was beautiful and the stone buildings remaining from times gone by were fascinating to climb and were impressive in their construction. The birds, the sheep, the flowers, the watering holes, all were very pleasant to enjoy, while getting a full day's worth of exercise. Read Less
