Walking & Cycling

There are a number of recognised walking routes in the south mainland and there is no better way of appreciating the stunning landscapes and views the area has to offer.  Information on some of the more popular routes can be found at:

Outdoor Access and Core Paths – Shetland Islands Council

South Mainland and Mousa walks (Walkhighlands)

Sumburgh Head in Sight

Cycling is also a great way of getting about and seeing Shetland.  Details of some popular cycling routes, including a number in the south mainland, can be found at Cycle | Shetland.org.  Information on cycle hire outlets in Shetland can be found here.

When out walking or cycling, please remember to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
