Shetland is an archipelago in Scotland, off the northeast coast. The islands lie to the northeast of Orkney, 170 miles from the Faroe Islands and form part of the division between the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the North Sea to the east. The largest island, known as "Mainland," has an area of 374 square miles, making it the third-largest Scottish island and the fifth-largest of the British Isles. Lerwick is the capital and main port of the Shetland Islands, located more than 100 miles off the north coast of mainland Great Britain on the east coast of the Shetland Mainland. Lerwick is about 210 miles north of Aberdeen, 230 miles west of Bergen in Norway and 230 miles south east of T├│rshavn in the Faroe Islands. Lerwick, Shetland's only burgh, had a population of approximately 7,070 residents and is the most northerly town in Scotland.

In this video we sail into Lerwick's harbour on the Sea Princess during a beautiful sunrise. After disembarking the ship I start a tour where we get a look at Lerwick as we leave town.
