Tuesday Travels. . .More of Shetland


We were in Shetland for nine days and we enjoyed every minute of it.  We were staying in an apartment called Fort Charlotte Apartments.  It was ideal for our purposes.  It was right in the centre of town next to the Fort, hence its name. Our apartment  can be seen to the right of the photo.  The window beneath the stack of eight chimneys belongs to our apartment.

 Fort Charlotte is obviously no longer used as a fort but the building is still there and stands watch over the harbour.

The centre of Lerwick is virtually car free and so there was no car noise in our apartment.

Close by was the local fish and chip shop which seemed to do a roaring trade every day so we made sure we sampled their fare one night.

This view from our apartment window lets you see how close we were to the town centre.

Our apartment was the ideal base for exploring Shetland.  More on my next Tuesday Travels.
