Bolts Car Hire in Lerwick, Shetland Islands, United Kingdom | Car Rental

Welcome to Bolts Car Hire, Lerwick, Scotland. Bolts Car Hire is Shetland's largest and most experienced Car Hire company, offering a wide range of modern, well maintained cars, vans, and mini buses. It is the aim of Bolts Car Hire to provide a reliable, personal, and friendly service.

Originally owned by Algar Sutherland, Bolts Car Hire, first began operating in 1971 and was later handed over to his son George. Starting with just four cars the Car Hire business quickly grew, and during the construction of the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal in the late 1970's had a fleet of nearly four hundred vehicles. In 1995, the business was bought by Arlene and John Garriock who, with the help of their children, have continued the Bolts tradition of being a family run business.

Upon arrival in Shetland it will soon become apparent that the islands are much larger than you may have anticipated and that, in order to explore and fully enjoy them, Car Hire is essential. Of the 100 islands comprising the group some 17 are inhabited. Six car-ferry services serve the larger islands. The 625 road miles covering Shetland are well worth exploring and with the freedom of a car you will soon discover the delights of these unique islands. There are over 3000 miles of scenic coastline where birds and wildlife abound.
