The harbour at Scalloway, capital of Shetland until the 17th century, is sheltered from all wind directions and can provide everything a visiting yacht requires.

Scalloway offers a storm-proof harbour, sheltered from all wind directions by the mainland and the islands of Trondra and Burra. Access can be gained at all states of the tide and in all weather conditions. The approaches and the harbour are well lit with various navigational aids.

When arriving in Scalloway, the visitors' pontoon is near Scalloway Boating Club (SBC) at Port Arthur, on the western side of the outer harbour. Alternatively 2 visitors berths are available at East Voe Marina by arrangement with the Committee, and berths are available at Blacksness Pier, on the west side of the inner harbour.
