Why set up a business in Shetland?
Why not? If you happen to be a lawyer who loves bird-watching, a web developer who enjoys yachting, a chef who wants to take stunning coastal walks or an engineer who moonlights as a fiddle player, Shetland could be the place for you.
Shetland is an ideal place to run a business. Postal services are excellent and exporting goods from Shetland is easy to arrange too. We have a nightly ferry link, daily air services and local haulage firms who are very experienced in moving goods to destinations throughout the UK and farther afield.
If you run an online business, high speed broadband is available in the isles’ most populated areas, with good connections and fast upload and download speeds.
