Accommodation has been arranged at the following providers.  Accommodation in Shetland, and Lerwick in particular, is limited and we would ask you to consider sharing where at all possible.


Queens Hotel (27 rooms) and the Grand Hotel (24 rooms)( - £77.00 per night B&B for a single room or £102.50 per night B&B for a double/twin room.  There are only a limited number of smoking rooms available and these cannot be guaranteed if requested at the time of booking as they will be allocated on a first come basis.


Please note that the Grand Hotel contains a nightclub and we would ask you to take this into consideration when you are making your accommodation choice.
