Shetland

public transport around Shetland

Hi,
I am planning to visit the Shetland islands this summer, and would love to see some of the more remote areas, small villages and beaches.
I will be relying on public transport though as I dont have a drivers license.
Is there an extensive and frequent bus service on the islands that would allow me to see a lot of the islands?
And the ferries? Are they regular and have bus connections?
Many thanks:-)

Shetland is wonderful and although a car does give you more freedom to move about, these two sites will help you with buses and ferries. Walking is also great there
I know you can get a multi ticket for the ferries.

I have put my tips on my Scotland page but if i can help do let me know.

www.visitshetland.com is the official tourist info site with lots of details and links to ferries etc.

http://www.shetland.gov.uk/transport/ has useful links, including bus timetables. I wouldn't call these to be either 'frequent' or 'extensive' (not really financially viable in such a location) but they will be sufficient for your needs in combination with walking.

You might also consider hiring a bike.
