Where you’ll be

Lerwick, Scotland, United Kingdom

While Sea Winds is quite secluded in the Lodberries, its only minutes away from all the pubs and eating places in Lerwick.
The Lounge Bar, by Market Cross, is a 5 minute walk away is a great place for a drink and meet locals. During the summer months, there is live music.
As for food, the best coffee and soup in town, is the Peerie Shop Cafe which is 5 minutes away by the Esplanade. They also do wonderful breakfasts and lunches of smoked salmon on bagels although I always end up ordering their superb soup. On Commercial Street, there are two wonderful restaurants, 'The Dowry' and 'No.88' both serving local produce.
Also Fjara, a lovely restaurant/cafe by the sea, is another good place for lunches or evening meals.
Hay's Dock Cafe at the Shetland Museum & Archives is also another lovely place to eat with stunning views across the harbour.
Further north in Brae, is one of the best fish & chip shops in the UK, Frankies. Although Lerwick's own The Fort is equally good!
As for take-aways, there are two Indian, two Chinese and one Thai restaurant so all in all, you don't need to cook if you want a complete break from it all.
If you enjoy fish, another tip is just to head to Blydoit Fish Shop and just stock up on their wonderful smoked fish and Orkney oatcakes and have a picnic with views of the sea (weather permitting)!
