Scalloway Harbour is situated in a sheltered inlet on the West coast of Shetland Mainland. It handles general and reefer cargo. Freight vessels trading to the UK and Scandinavia regularly call at Scalloway. Cargoes handled include frozen fish, bulk fertiliser, building materials, road tar and aggregates. Scalloway is also an important fishing harbour which is nominally open in all weathers but movements are at the discretion of the Harbour Master and may be delayed if conditions are unsuitable.
