A number of car hire firms operate in Shetland, including:
All of these companies can have cars ready for you to collect on arrival at the airport or ferry terminal.
If travelling in your own car you will disembark from the ferry in Lerwick, from where you will have an outstanding 55 mile drive to Saxa Vord, plus 2 short ferry crossings.
As a cluster of islands, Shetland is ideally suited to air transport and Unst has its own airfield only a few miles from Saxa Vord. Shetland is peppered with airfields and island hopping is a must for anyone with a plane.
The bus service from Lerwick to Baltasound, Unst runs 3 times a day and takes 2hrs 25mins, including the 2 ferry crossings. See Shetland Bus Services.
Shetland Islands Council’s excellent ferry services operate between Toft, North Mainland and Ulsta, Yell, and between Gutcher, Yell and Belmont, Unst, sailing back and forth throughout the day. Find out more about Shetland's inter-island ferries.
Although not operating to Unst, Shetland Islands Council operates regular air service between the airstrip at Tingwall, north of Lerwick, and Fair Isle, Out Skerries, Foula and Papa Stour.
