We arrive on a cruise ship IN LERWIN, the time in port is 8am -5pm.
From reading the Lerwick forum - I am thinking that renting a car could be best for us. (I know you call it "hiring" a car there?) My husband is worried about driving & thinks it's a bad idea - "what if something happened?"
I have driven in Los Angeles my entire life where we have 4-5 lane freeways, bumper to bumper traffic & crazy people zipping around & cutting us off illegally so I am not as worried although I am concerned about driving on the opposite side of the street (Americans call it the "wrong side" lol).
Is there a lot of traffic in Lerwin area? Is parking fairly easy? Are we better off with a bus and maybe a taxi combo?
Things I'd drive to (or bus or taxi) - if time:
Sumburgh Head Lighthouse, Sumburgh
Eshaness Lighthouse - I realize this is the opposite end so maybe no realistic?
Shetland ponies - thinking we'd pass some somewhere?
Drive through stop at Scalloway maybe?
Drive by/ through Tingwall Loch
Any advise, comments, tips appreciated.Edited: 08 June 2018, 23:10
