Connections within Shetland are excellent, with frequent car ferries to most of the outlying islands and a good road network.
There is a good inter-island ferry service operated by Shetland Islands Council
Shetland Islands Council provides inter-island air services which are operated under contract by Directflight Limited
from Tingwall Airport.
To fully explore the islands, car hire is recommended if you are not bringing your own car. There are several car hire companies in Shetland.
