A sheltered fishing village on the Mainland of Shetland in the Northern Isles. It is situated 35 miles (56 km) from Lerwick on a bay of the Ura Firth which opens out into St. Magnus Bay. Built of Scots Pine in Norway and re-erected in Hillswick at the beginning of the 20th Century, the St. Magnus Bay Hotel was the Shetland terminal of the old North of Scotland Shipping Company and remains the most prominent building in the village.
