Lerwick or Ler Vick (means muddy bay) is very much the heart of Shetland's commercial activities. Its harbour is always kept busy with fishing boats and ferries. During summer, the quayside is even more active with visiting cruises and yachts and historic vessels like the Swan.
The town centre is comprised of one main street, known as the Commercial Street. Overlooking the north end of this street is Fort Charlotte. If you prefer sauntering the Southern end, you arrive at the beautiful Bain's beach.
Lerwick's dominating Town Hall speaks volumes of its glorious Victorian past. The main tourist sight here is the Shetland Museum.
