Lerwick Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 89 photos
I arrive Lerwick at the time 0530. The day was very foogy. I was very hungry after one night on the ferry from Bergen i Norway since I did not have an acceptable paying card, I had only Visa Elektron. Walking in the small city in this early morning trying find a bakery was in a way very nice, it was silent expekt for the birds. At last the Lerwick hotel open and I could have a expensive breakfast.
Lerwick is UK most north city. A small city with warm atmosphere and intresting history.
During 800 a.c, the Vikings start to enter the islands.
Ferry goes to Bergen in Norway, Kirkwall and Aberdeen.
After breakfast I took the lokal bus to Scalloway and Scalloway hotel where I had an reservation. The hotel staff whee varm an nice, the hotel clean, and if you where lucky and have a room on the right side you have a very nice view of the harbour.
Scalloway is a small village abaut 20 kilometer from Lerwick. During the great war the norwegian resistens took headquarter here and there was a lot of trafik over the atlantic to Norway with small fishing boats with refugees and resistenspeople and of course supply.
There is a small museum in Scalloway telling the Norwegian war story and the help Shetland people gave to the resistens.
