Christine Petersen, President of TripAdvisor for Business, said “This award, which is only given to the most exceptional performers in TripAdvisor's global business community, is a significant achievement deserving of recognition from both travellers and staff.”

Shetland Museum and Archives has a five-star rating and is listed as the top visitor attraction in Lerwick, with Hay's Dock receiving 4.5 stars. Cathy Moseley from Birmingham commented: “If you are ever in Shetland, do not miss this amazing museum, just shows how the history of a place can be explained in such an interesting, interactive way, appealing to all ages, and a wonderful cafe to round up the visit”
