Hillside Brae for a Short Break in Shetland
If you’re planning a short break of three nights or more, Hillside Brae is ideal. It’s conveniently close to Lerwick, so it’s easy to take advantage of all the town’s facilities. Its central location within Shetland makes touring easy and it’s no problem getting from or to the airport or the ferry terminal.
Because it’s comfortable and well-equipped, you’ll feel at home right away. You have the use of all the facilities and up to four people can be very comfortable for just £95 a night.
If you’re staying for just a few days, our top suggestions would include:
- A visit to the Shetland Museum and Archives, for an excellent introduction to the isles
- A day tour of the South Mainland, including visits to the Broch of Mousa, the archaeological sites at Jarlshof and Old Scatness, bird- or whale-spotting on Sumburgh Head and a walk across the shell-sand tombolo to St Ninian’s Isle
- A long walk on the cliffs at Eshaness in the north-west mainland, taking in Scalloway and Weisdale en route
- A day trip or wildlife cruise to Noss, where the huge cliffs are home to a seabird city
