Lerwick is the capital of Shetland Islands set on the principal island of Mainland Shetland. It is the most northerly town of Britain. Founded on fishing industry and with tough Viking connections, today little remains of the old Lerwick village. Gray buildings dating from 17th century line the flagstone streets of this extraordinary town. Learn its history at Shetland Museum, which houses a unique collection of Pict and Viking artifacts. Also visit the Town Hall, Victorian-Gothic building which dates back from 1884. Its nice stained-glass windows depict some Norse sagas. Other sights of interest include Cromwellian Fort Charlotte, Shetland Croft Museum and Up-Helly-Aa, annual Norse fire festival held every January.
On island's southern tip is the ancient site of Jarlshof. Elsewhere on it is Clichimin Broch, another historic site which contains a massive Pictish fort, dating from 100 BC and set on a little island in a loch.
