Skeld is a landlocked haven with an excellent pier and new marina. The marina has eight visitor berths.

When entering the narrows of Skeld Voe, keep centre then point towards the church to avoid the shallow water of the centre line. The church is a large white building with a dark roof (see picture above).

Recently, reduced depths have been reported in the vicinity of the narrows. Please refer to the new (2020) Clyde Cruising Club guide which has more information, or seek local advice. It is recommended to navigate with caution and avoid arrival or departure near low water.

Skeld has a modern and exceptionally well-equipped caravan park. It’s a peaceful and friendly site, where every visitor receives a warm welcome.

Further west are two of the most exquisite bays in Shetland: Westerwick and Culswick. At each, a narrow green valley ends in a pebble beach fringed by sea stacks, cliffs and caves.

For a real taste of Skeld hospitality schedule your trip for the last weekend of July (approx) when the annual regatta is held. There is rowing, yachting, fishing and socialising!
