Sumburgh Head Shipwreck Tours

Sumburgh Head is pleased to be taking part in the first ever Shetland Boat Week, offering tours of the shipwrecks around the Sumburgh coastline.

The tour will take you around the outdoor areas of Sumburgh Head pointing out the areas where ships have previously run aground, sometimes with disastrous consequences. The tour will finish in the Engine Room where interpretation panels show how Lighthouse technology has improved maritime safety, and what we have learned from the past.

Please note, due to the landscape and walking involved, this tour is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility.

This tour will run daily at 12.00noon during Shetland Boat Week - Monday 8th to Sunday 14th August.

Cost: Free to season ticket holders; £3.00 for non-ticket holders.

Booking is not required and tour, or season tickets, can be purchased on the day.

Tour leaves from the Gift Shop at Sumburgh Head Lighthouse Visitor Centre.
