Lerwick : Michelin's recommendations


Lerwick, the Shetland archipelago's main town, stands on a headland overlooking a natural harbour sheltered by the island of Bressay. It has always been a major fishing port and the oil boom has brought new activities. Lerwick was used as a port by Vikings ships (notably those of King Haakon), 17C Dutch fishing boats, as well as German and British fleets in the 20C. Today, Lerwick is used by oil tankers.
