Will be arriving on cruise ship on 7th June, and would like to know how to get to Jalshaf. Are there any buses? if not any other waysto get there?. Should have from 8.00-5.00. Many thanks for any help, Von.

I think you need the bus down to the airport. June 7th is mid-week, so you should be in luck. Have a look at zettrans.org.uk/bus/SouthMai.... It's less than an hour each way on the bus. Check for certain with the driver but I reckon you want the Sumburgh Hotel Gate stop.

It's a great place to visit, well worth the journey down there.

Jarlshof is very near Sumburgh Airport and bus 6 runs from Lerwick. Timetables here:

zettrans.org.uk/bus/SouthMai...

Although it is not a very frequent service you should be able to catch the 0915 bus (or the 1030 if you wish to explore Lerwick a little first) and the 1200 or 1315 (or 1530) back to Lerwick from Sumburgh Airport. You should expect to do a little walking, of course.

Site information here:

Other than the bus you will have to take a taxi or guided tour/private guide, I think.

Indeed! The entrance is right next to the hotel. But you will see the site easily from the bus right after you pass the end of the airport runway. The bus will continue after the hotel all around the other end of the runway to the terminal.
