Shetland is about 200 miles north of Aberdeen in Scotland and a similar distance from Bergen on Norway's west coast. There is a daily, overnight, ferry link to and from Aberdeen which also calls into Orkney several times a week.

Regular flights throughout the year connect Shetland directly with Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Orkney. There are connections to all main UK airports through British Airways or Flybe. The flight from Aberdeen is one hour.

Connections within Shetland are excellent with frequent car ferries to most of the islands and a splendid road network. Buses connect most areas although to fully explore the islands a car is recommended. Cycling is a pleasure on the quiet roads but beware of the hills and headwinds!

Mucklehus is 18 miles south of Lerwick, the capital of Shetland and 8 miles north of Sumburgh, the islands main airport. We are a 10 minute walk from the bus stop on the main Lerwick – Sumburgh route, providing excellent frequent daily service.
