Shetland Shopping

While the Shetland Islands could never be mistaken for city centre shopping destinations, you might be surprised to learn that your shopping basket won’t be empty!

Most of Shetland’s shopping facilities are in Lerwick. There are a few chain shops, and a couple of supermarkets exist happily here, but most of the shops are owned and run by locals. And that gives the place a special charm. The Toll Clock Shopping Centre includes eleven shops, plus beauty salons and café.

Many towns and villages on the islands offer at least a small convenience shop and perhaps some gallery or specialist shop in which to browse. Textiles, crafts, silverware and designer one-offs are all represented here.

In addition, most museums and visitor centres have their own shops, as does the airport. The Shetland Museum’s shop, for example, includes a large number of items relating to Shetland culture, dialect, archaeology and much more.
