New Heritage Season Ticket for South Mainland Attractions

Published: 01 July, 2019

Shetland Amenity Trust has launched a new ‘Heritage Season Ticket’ which can be used at Trust sites across the South Mainland, including Sumburgh Head Lighthouse & Visitor Centre, Old Scatness Broch and Iron Age Village, and the Crofthouse Museum at Dunrossness.  The ticket provides up to a third off the usual price and allows you to visit the sites as many times as you wish throughout the season.

The new Heritage Season Ticket gives people a great opportunity to explore the South Mainland as part of a day trip or over the course of the summer. Find out about Shetland’s early inhabitants at Old Scatness, how they lived and what happened when the Vikings arrived. Head along to the Crofthouse Museum to experience what it was like to live in a typical Shetland house in the late 19th century. And at Sumburgh Head you will find Shetland’s most easily accessible seabird colony. You can also discover the history of Shetland’s oldest Stevenson Lighthouse and the Keepers who were responsible for the operation of the Light and the safety of everyone out at sea. Enter our Marine Life Centre to plunge beneath the waves and explore Shetland’s rich marine world or step into the Radar Hut to find out about Shetland during World War Two. With so much to discover, there really is something for everyone!

All three sites will have Open Days during this year’s Shetland Nature Festival (6th – 14th July) with lots of additional drop-in activities, and the new Heritage Season Ticket will provide access to all these events. The tickets are now available to purchase at all three sites as well as at the Shetland Museum and Archives.  A family ticket is £25, an adult is £12, and a child ticket is £5.
