Shetland's essential boat trip
We regret to inform all our guests and clients that Mousa Boat will not be sailing until further notice due to the current situation with the COVID19 virus.

The RSPB have closed the Mousa reserve to visitors until further notice also Historic Scotland have closed all keykeeper sites (of which Mousa Broch is one) until further notice.

We will be reviewing the situation on a month by month basis and sincerely hope that things improve fairly quickly.

We have had many cancellations now and apart from being the governments restrictions we feel it’s also our duty of care to our guests and families to close until further notice to protect against spread of the virus.

Please stay safe folks, Mousa will still be there when all this is over.

Take care
Mousa Boat Team

Midsummer on Mousa is a special time, and for a few evenings only in June (15th, 17th, 22nd, 24th, 26th) we operate a guided island walk together with a storm petrel dusk trip. This gives a unique opportunity to experience in one visit what makes Mousa a special place at this time of year on Shetland.
