Scalloway, Burra, Trondra, Tingwall, Whiteness & Weisdale. Central Shetland is a landscape of intricate contrasts: layers of limestone make slashes of green between brown hills of harder rock; long narrow sea inlets, or voes, gouged out by glaciers, run miles into the land; storm-battered off-lying islands shelter peaceful anchorages; it's great walking and fishing country, with scenery, wild flowers and birdlife of amazing richness and variety.
enlargeShetland Bus MemorialThe busy fishing port of Scalloway, Shetland's capital in the 17th century, is the heart of Central Shetland. This picturesque and surprisingly leafy village is shielded from Atlantic gales by the rugged isles of Trondra and Burra. To the north lie Tingwall's fertile valley and the headlands of Whiteness and Weisdale.
