Although it may look small on a map Shetland is surprisingly big and extends over a large area from Sumburgh in the south to the northernmost point on the British Isles. Although spread over a wide area of ocean the isles benefit from a network of very good roads and regular, affordable, ferries. Nort Neuk, within one mile of the road running through the Mainland of Shetland, is in easy reach of all areas. Lerwick, the capital and main town is within 15 minutes drive of Hoswick and even the island of Unst can easily be visited on a day trip. Other outlying islands can be visited by ferries or by a light aircraft service. There are bus services but to fully explore the isles a car is recommended.
