    時間 Estimate Duration

Upon arrival in Scalloway, the former Shetland capital, you’ll visit the castle, built in 1600 by the tyrant Earl Patrick Stewart using forced labor. It is four stories high and now roofless. Your next visit will be the nearby Scalloway Museum which houses a special 'Shetland Bus' exhibition depicting the village's unique role in WWII operations. The story of the Shetland Bus is one of the most dramatic to emerge from the Second World War. It goes back to April 1940 when German forces occupied Norway, resulting in a stream of refugees heading west, most of whom landed in Shetland.


You’ll continue through the Tingwall Valley with its Norse heritage for a visit to a local farm to see some Shetland Ponies, native to the island. Here, you’ll have the chance to photograph the world famous ponies. These delightful animals are also known to have heavy coats, short legs and are considered quite intelligent. They are a very strong breed, used for riding, driving, and pack purposes. The owner or staff member of the stud will be delighted to give a short talk and share their knowledge of the ponies with you. We head back to the quayside whilst hearing more about Shetland`s culture and heritage from our local guide.
