Join one of the visitor guides at Sumburgh Head to hear about the shipwrecks around the Sumburgh coastline.

The tour will take you around the outdoor areas of Sumburgh Head pointing out the areas where ships have previously run aground, sometimes with disastrous consequences.

The tour will finish in the Engine Room where interpretation panels show how Lighthouse technology has improved maritime safety, and what we have learned from the past.

Please note, due to the landscape and walking involved, this tour is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility.

Location: Sumburgh Head Lighthouse Visitor Centre.

Price: Free to Sumburgh Head ticket holders, £3.00 for non-ticket holders.
