Bigton is on the west side of the South Mainland of Shetland, 18 miles from Lerwick and 9 miles from Sumburgh airport. The village has a community-owned shop, village hall and children's playpark. There is a bus service to Sumburgh and Lerwick, which stops outside the shop.
The South Mainland itself has a wide selection of places to visit, to suit all tastes. From beautiful sandy beaches, to the cliffs of Sumburgh head with their colonies of nesting seabirds, particularly the well-known puffins. Killer whales are often seen around the coast. The two impressive archaeological sites of Jarlshof and Scatness are also well worth a visit, as is the visitor centre at Sumburgh lighthouse. For when the weather is not so good, there are several welcoming local shops and cafes.
