- Cunningsburgh Touring Park
Cunningsburgh Touring Park sits snugly alongside a small, quiet marina on the sheltered east shore of Aithsvoe, Cunningsburgh, Shetland.
A 15-minute drive south from Lerwick, through picturesque countryside, will see you sitting comfortably in our fully serviced, 4-star touring park. Our heated facility building provides showers, toilets, laundry facilities and a spacious kitchen/dining area for cooking meals. Ideally suited for relaxing with friends and enjoying the splendid view over the peaceful marina and across the Voe to the village and hills beyond.
The surrounding area is steeped in local history and abundant in wildlife, offering an ideal base for both marine and land-based activities. With many outdoor walks to choose from in Cunningsburgh, one idyllic picnic excursion is the leisurely walk east from the park to the old ruins at Helliness, taking in a wonderful array of wildlife as well as giving splendid views north to Lerwick and south to the atmospheric little hamlet of Leebitton, and the island of Mousa lying close offshore.
Authentic Shetland knitwear is produced locally in Cunningsburgh by “Barbara Isbister Knitwear” and “Shetland Designer” and can be viewed and purchased directly from them.
A short drive from the marina, adjacent and south a little from Mail beach, is the ancient Viking quarry at Catpund; here pots and bowls were carved from soapstone for both local use and export. Some can still be seen carved on the rocks, waiting to be chipped off and hollowed out. An information board provides excellent historic details.
Further south, sitting on the Sandsayre foreshore at Leebitton, is the small, award-winning interpretation building, also serving as the waiting room for the short ferry trip across to Mousa. www.sandsayrepiertrust.com
West a little from Sandsayre is Sandwick Baking Company grocers, then further down the road the Hoswick Visitors Centre with café, local interpretation and magnificent antique radio display.
All this and more within just a 10-minute drive from our Touring Park.
Look forward to seeing you.
