Why do people only talk about Lerwick on this forum, what people do there or see there, what happened there last week or what they believe will happen there next week? Why, when only one third of the population of Shetland live in Lerwick and the other two thirds live across the rest of the isles?


Do two thirds of the population just keep themselves to themselves, or is the only thing worth mentioning nowhere other than Lerwick, or are there a lot of people in Lerwick that like talking about themselves?

It's because Lerwick is the centre of the universe. Lerwick is great, lovely town, fantastic shops, well organized town centre by SIC and Living Lerwick. Lerwick is the heart of Shetland.
