Getting Around Shetland
Shetland is made up of over 100 islands, of which only 15 are inhabited. There are 639 miles of good roads which are very well used by a range of public and private hire transport services.
The individual islands are well connected by a fleet of car ferries operated by Shetland Islands Council, which run on a regular basis every day.
Smaller uninhabited islands such as Noss and Mousa are accessible by private boat tour operators.
For full details and up to date timetables for inter-island ferries, planes and buses, please visit the Shetland Transport Partnership website at http://www.zettrans.org.uk/.
