SRT announces plans for holiday park at Unst Leisure Centre

Shetland Recreational Trust (SRT) are looking to build a holiday park across from their leisure centre in Unst, according to new plans released by the trust.

As well as pods for visitors to stay in, SRT said the site would have areas for tents, picnics and barbecues.

SRT said they would look to add attractions to the site, situated adjacent to the leisure centre, where “everyone can play and have fun together”.

“You can be a crazy four-year-old pirate on a zip-wire or a sixty-year-old enjoying a leisurely cycle on one of our mountain bikes,” the SRT said.

The trust have asked anyone with any comments regarding the site to contact them at

    Will you be building a Changing Places toilet and shower facilities that are accessible to all?
    I am sure this facility would be Wellcome and well used but I would also be interested to see where access roads will be placed. There is a single track road on one side. The area is busy with access to the school, Leisure Centre and Unst Health Centre.
