Shetland Tours

Shetland has many areas of interest, why not ask us to organise your next tour of the wonderful Shetland Isles.

Tours

We can provide taxi tours tailored to suit your exact requirements, giving you a unique experience of our beautiful Islands. A taxi tour with Sinclair's taxis will ensure you see not only the scenery and history seen on a coach tour, but also areas which may be inaccessible to larger vehicles.

We can vary tours to suit the length of your stay in the Islands. A wide range of Shetland nature and wildlife can also be seen on any of our tours including Shetland Ponies, puffins and a wide range of seabirds, seals, otters and wildflowers.

A tour of the South Mainland of Shetland would need a minimum of two and a half hours. This tour incorporates beautiful scenery on route to Sumburgh Head Lighthouse where in the summer you will see colonies of Shetland's regular breeding birds, including the Puffins. The largest tombolo in the United Kingdom is also seen on this tour, connecting St Ninian's Isle to the Shetland Mainland. Other sites of interest can include, The Crofthouse Museum, Old Scatness, Jarlshof, Mousa Broch and Quendale Mill.

A tour of the North Mainland would need a minimum of three hours. This tour would include views of Mavis Grind, where you drive over the meeting point between the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean. You would visit Hillswick and continue on to see the spetacular cliff scenery at Eshaness.

A shorter tour option, which would require a minimum of one hour, would be to Scalloway; the old capital of Shetland which is now a busy fishing port. Here you will find a wealth of history in Scalloway Castle, which dates back to 1599. You will also find the new Scalloway Museum, which hosts memorabilia from all periods of local history, including the famous story of the World War II; the Shetland Bus.

Tours are charged at an hourly rate, rather than day rates. There are no charges if the weather conditions on the day limit your original tour plans. No charges are made for cancellations and no deposits will be taken before your arrival.
