Shetland Islands, Schottland, Vereinigtes Königreich

Scalloway, the Ancient Capital, is a very friendly and safe place for anybody to come, stay and explore. The local playing park has a lovely play area for children alongside a grass football pitch and hard surface multi-court so there is no need for them to be bored!
Harbour-side walks can show up many things of interest including glimpses of otters, seals and many seabirds! This last summer we had Striped Dolphins performing their acrobatics and there was a bonanza of mackerel caught from the shore and straight on the frying pan!
There is good deep sea fishing to be had not far out amongst the many beautiful islands. These can be viewed from the top of the hill whilst watching the amazing sunsets go down on your day's adventures.

Scalloway – Shetland’s ancient capital – is dominated by Scalloway Castle and the busy harbour area. This picturesque and interesting village, quite ‘leafy’ for Shetland, is a fine place to have a stroll, browse in the shops and museum, or stop for a refreshment.

As you come round the Scord above Scalloway (ON Skálavágr – bay of the booths or halls/houses), stop and enjoy the views of the smaller offshore isles. The bigger islands of Trondra and Burra lie just to the south and are connected by bridge to the Mainland. Some of the offshore islands are the drowned tops of granite hills. Granite was quarried on Hildasay in the 19th century and was carried by wool clippers as far afield as Australia.

The brown heather-covered hills above the village are composed of the metamorphic rock phyllite, and contrast with the green limestone valley of Tingwall with its lochs. Today, the quarry at the Scord provides stone for local road building.
Scalloway Castle was built in 1600 by the tyrant, Earl Patrick Stewart. The Stewarts enforced a change from Norse to Scots rule. The castle was used as a garrison for Cromwell’s troops and an interpretive display relates its history. You can get the castle key from Scalloway Museum.
The museum features exhibits relating to the village’s unique role in World War Two. The ‘Shetland Bus’ was the name given to operations undertaken by the fishing boat crews who maintained a route between Shetland and occupied Norway to land undercover agents and supplies for the Norwegian resistance movement, and also brought refugees back to Shetland.
The first ‘Shetland Bus’ base was at Lunna (near Vidlin, on the east side), from where over 50 missions took place. In 1942 the operation moved to Scalloway, where those involved became a big part of the village that reminded them so much of home. Losses were high (between September 1942 and March 1943 seven boats were lost), resulting in three submarine chasers – Hessa, Hitra and Vigra – being donated by the USA.

The Shetland Bus memorial on the waterfront commemorates those who lost their lives during the hazardous operations.
The Old Haa by the Burn Beach was built in 1750 while a plaque on a 19th-century cottage in New Street explains mason, inventor and philosopher William Johnson’s theories on the tides and the moon.
Blacksness Pier (1830) was built around the castle. The village declined with the rise of Lerwick, but had a revival of fortunes in the 19th century with the prosperity of the fishing industry. The pier was extended in 1896 to accommodate the steamer from Leith, and again in 1980 to serve the needs of the local fishing fleet. Vessels involved in salmon and mussel farming as well as shipping from the oil industry use its sheltered waters and the facilities of the village.

Community events play a big part in village life and Shetland’s first Up-Helly-A’ celebration of the year is held in Scalloway – the Fire Festival taking place around the second weekend of January. A gala weekend (usually in July) has a range of fun events and activities for all ages, while an annual regatta and various fishing competitions are also popular.
The village hall and the youth centre are well-used facilities, while other amenities include the hotel, pub, restaurants and cafes, takeaway, various shops, a boating club and British Legion social club.
Scalloway’s first football team formed in 1899 and the Fraser Park, used for matches, also has a play park and picnic area. The swimming pool is on the right, next to the school as you enter the village, and is another fine place to use up some energy.

Out towards Port Arthur you pass the Prince Olaf Slipway and Norway House, which both saw significant activity during the war years
Scalloway Boating Club welcomes visiting yachts and yachtsmen; a pontoon at the boating club and marinas at both Port Arthur and East Voe are available (see www.shetland.gov.uk/ports/yachting).
The NAFC Marine Centre, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands, provides training and research facilities to support the nautical, fisheries, engineering and aquaculture industries. The building also houses a popular restaurant (open to all).
Gallows Hill, or Witches Hill, which sits above the village, saw the last witches – Barbara Tulloch and her daughter Ellen King – burned in 1712.
A fine but fairly challenging walk is from Berry to the valley of Burwick with its lochs and archaeological remains (see www.walkshetland.com).
