Unst is the most northernly island in Britain. It is thought to be the first foot-fall of Vikings in the North Atlantic. There are the remains of at least 60 longhouses, the highest density of rural Viking sites anywhere, including Scandinavia. Haroldswick, like all of Shetland, is rich in the remains of our past. Guests who are interested in the heritage of the area can explore our own ice house. Our Viking enthusiasts can walk a few hundred yards from Bordanoost to visit The Skidbladner (replica Gokstad ship), and the Viking Longhouse reconstruction. Both provide a focal point for visitors and residents from which they can explore Unst’s Viking heritage. The Unst Heritage Centre and the Unst Boat Haven also display a range of exhibitions and information.
