shetland commercial property locations
Located 80km north of the Orkney Islands, the Shetland Islands are a collection of 100 individual islands, of which 15 are inhabited. The islands have enjoyed increased prosperity with the discovery of North Sea oil and specifically the opening of the oil terminal at Sullom Voe. The islands' administrative centre is Lerwick, which is the only town in the Shetlands. Despite its population of just 7,500 residents, the town offers office space to buy, commercial shops for rent and retail units to let.
Transport between the islands and to the Scottish mainland at Aberdeen is by ferry or via the airport to the south of Lerwick, which offers flights to other islands, to Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands and to Aberdeen, Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh on the mainland. During the summer months some flights are also run to London Stansted, ensuring that commercial business property on the Shetland Islands remains well connected to the mainland and to the surrounding islands.
