Scotland Coach & Minbus Hire Service With Driver

Shetland Coach Hire

Shetland Coach Hire

With Shetland coach hire you can secure a minibus or coach to take you around the islands whenever you wish. Whether you are visiting with office colleagues on an outdoors bonding trip or taking the family to see the Northern Lights, you can rely on our team to get you there.

We have drivers based in the heart of Shetland so they can reach all corners of the islands quickly. They can also take you beyond Shetland to other areas, co-ordinating sea passage or even providing a shuttle service to Inverness airport if required.

If you need a Shetland coach hire, Scotland’s northernmost islands become so much easier to get around with one of our vehicles. They come from a fleet of well managed, modern minibuses. 

These are available in a range of sizes. From 8 seats to 16 seats to 24 seats. And when you have a big gang of pals to take to the islands, we can provide 33 seaters, 49 seaters and 70 seater coach hire.

How To Book | Shetland Coach Hire

Making a booking is simple with Shetland Coach Hire – please phone or email our booking team and let us know what you need. Our drivers will be with you on time, they are never late. And they will confirm your booking before they arrive. 

So if you have a school trip to get pupils to or a Gilbert Bain Hospital appointment you must not miss, we’re a travel company you can rely on.

Company accounts are always available. If you find that you require repeat journeys in Shetland, one of these tailored accounts will provide increased discounts for you over time.


Also known as The Shetland Isles, this is a group of islands that lie to the northeast of the Scottish Mainland. 

The economy is driven by fishing and textiles, mainly the making of knitwear. There is a strong Norse tradition on the Shetlands due to the early settlement of Nordic conquerors. 

This tradition is reflected in traditional clothing, fiddle music and dialect. Culturally, writing and music is central to the Shetland life with writers and poets coming from the region, having found relative fame writing in the regional dialect. 

The islands even have their own animal breeds, such as Shetland sheep, geese, ducks and cows.

If you wish to get off Shetland to places like John o Groats – or just enjoy the coastal pathways of the mainland, our minibus or coach hire can arrange your journey.


There are some great places to visit in Shetland such as the Scalloway Museum, Fort Charlotte and Sumburgh Head. If you have time to visit just one place, we recommend…


If you love birds, this is the place for you. Not only can you escape to this bird paradise. You can also stay there as the observatory also features a guesthouse. 

They have thought of everything here for the visiting Twitcher; a bar, lounge, visitor centre and even a boot room to take off your wet, muddy outerwear. 

Once you have your binoculars out there is no shortage of feathered species to spot and if you need any help identifying any. There are several highly trained wardens around to lend you a hand.

Shetland and its beguiling remoteness should definitely be experienced. To explore more along the mainland coast, our minibus and coach hire can take you to Thurso, Dounreay or Wick.

We were very pleased with the service we received. Our home is not easy to find but the driver had left plenty of time to follow our instructions when he phoned for help. He was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely use and recommend this company again especially for groups of 6 and above.

My family were going out to Christmas dinner on Christmas Day. The price was fantastic to take 10 of us out including multiple pick up and drop offs. The driver Atif was extremely pleasant, prompt and accommodating. Highly recommend and will definitely use them again. Kind Regards, Stephanie International Business Manager.
