SHETLAND INDEX


Bressay is a beautiful island, directly east and opposite Lerwick across Bressay Sound, which is just off the east coast of mainland Shetland. Although Bressay is an Island, it is only a 5 minute ferry journey across Bressay Sound to Lerwick.

View of Bressay from the Lerwick ferry.

Bressay Lighthouse is located on the rocky headland at the south entrance to Lerwick Harbour and an iconic image for any visitor to the isles and the Island of Bressay in particular. The 19th century lighthouse cottages offers a peaceful place to stay with great views across the sea. Great for a family holiday, or, as in our case, enjoying a getaway with friends taking the opportunity to stay in one of Shetland’s most famous landmarks.
