SHETLAND Amenity Trust is hoping to see locals return to its sites “again and again” this summer with the launch of a ‘heritage season ticket’.
The ticket can be used at the trust’s sites in the South Mainland including Sumburgh Head Lighthouse & Visitor Centre, Old Scatness Broch and Iron Age Village, and the Crofthouse Museum at Dunrossness.
It provides up to a third off the usual ticket price and can be used repeated times during the season.
Shetland Amenity Trust chairwoman Ruth Mackenzie said: “We are keen to enable everyone in Shetland to visit these fantastic sites again and again and hope that the heritage season ticket will help them to do just that.
“As a charity we rely on ticket sales and donations to keep the sites open. It is hoped that people will come and visit and then come back again with friends and family.”
The tickets are now available to purchase at all three sites as well as at the Shetland Museum and Archives. A family ticket is £25, an adult is £12, and a child ticket is £5.
