Sumburgh Head UHA Roundup

Published: 07 February, 2023

Thank you to everyone that came and visited us at Sumburgh Head last week during a frisky few days of weather!

We enjoy opening the Visitor Centre during Up Helly Aa week - it is a great opportunity for people to experience the site out of season.

Katja’s Unken Kaffee was open too so people could warm up with a cuppa at take-in the incredible panoramic views.

We are glad the horizontal rain did not put you off - you are a hardy lot and we had a great time meeting you all!


Sumburgh Head Visitor Centre facilities and Unken Kaffee are now closed for the 2022 season, and will re-open in April 2023. All outdoor areas, including the Nature Reserve remain open all year round. The indoor facilities including customer toilets, will remain closed until we re-open our Visitor Centre in April for the 2023 season.
