Welcome

Shetland Amenity Trust constantly strives to preserve and enhance everything that is distinctive about Shetland's cultural and natural heritage, promoting access to it whether physical or intellectual.

The Trust was created in 1983 and has since delivered an extensive range of high quality heritage and culture projects, in partnership with a range of local, national and international agencies.

We continue to be pro-active in seeking new opportunities and identifying new funding sources, to further enhance the heritage and culture experience for local Shetland people and visitors to our islands.

We are part of a community which takes great pride and pleasure in our cultural and natural heritage, embracing traditions, dialect and our physical environment in all of our activities.

    Da Voar Redd Up Postponed

    The Shetland Amenity Trust have announced that Da Voar Redd Up will be postponed until later in the year due to the Coronavirus pandemic.  The annual event which is now in its 33rd year was due to take place from the 25th to 26th April with an anticipated 4,500 volunteers cleaning up Shetland’s beaches and roadside verges.  It is hoped that the event will now take place in the Autumn but the organisers are still encouraging people to pick up litter whilst they are out and about.
