Shipping to the Shetland Islands

Our international shipping services for the Shetland Islands

When shipping to the highlands of Scotland, we can reach all eight counties, including Inverness and the Argyll. These islands can be difficult to reach, even for our expert couriers, due to their sporadic nature. Luckily, no area of the UK is too difficult or remote for our expert and specialist couriers to reach. Just know that if you need a parcel delivered somewhere, it’ll reach its destination.

To make your shipping journey easier than ever, start shipping to the Shetland Islands with The Delivery Group.
