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