Jarlshof Prehistoric Settlement

Jarlshof Prehistoric Settlement
This remarkable prehistoric archaeological site was uncovered by chance after a severe storm in 1896. Today it's one of the most famous archaeological sites in all the British Isles.

Remains include thick walls of Bronze Age settlements, a defensive wall from the Iron Age and a Viking longhouse.

Experience the unique unspoiled scenery of Shetland on the hour-long drive from Lerwick. Along the way you'll pass Shetland ponies, black sheep and small crofting (farming) communities, all providing an insight into island life.
