Voe is a picturesque village nestled in the heart of Shetland. It is perched at the head of a deep sea loch offering stunning views.

Often cited as a gateway to the outer islands and north mainland, here you’ll find all the charm and hospitality of a traditional Scottish and Shetland community.

Voe is a perfect destination for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy, modern life. You can spend your days exploring the rugged coastline and rolling hills, taking in the fresh sea air and soaking up the breath-taking scenery.

Toft is approximately 10 miles North of Voe, from here is the regular ferry service to Yell and Unst. Both islands offer some of the most spectacular landscapes in Scotland, which include bird populated sea cliffs, white sand beaches and heather-covered moors. 

Even closer at hand, approximately 5 miles, is the Laxo ferry terminal. A 30 minute crossing will take you to the Isle of Whalsay, also known as the Bonnie Isle.

You are also within short driving distance to the village of Brae, which has a number of bars and restaurants including the Mid Brae Inn, Brae Hotel, and the Busta House Hotel. Another option is to head into Shetland’s capital of Lerwick, or through to Scalloway, the ancient capital that continues to thrive.

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful retreat or an adventurous holiday, Shetland and Voe have something to offer, with friendly locals, incredible scenery, and unbeatable access to some of Scotland’s most beautiful places.
