Shetland Islands

Beatrice Wishart
Candidate for Shetland

Beatrice was born in Lerwick and raised her family in Shetland. In 2017 in the Scottish local elections, she was elected as a councillor for Lerwick South, and was appointed Depute Convener.

Taking an active role with Shetland Liberal Democrats over the last two decades, before being elected MSP in 2019, Beatrice worked with Alistair Carmichael and Tavish Scott in the Shetland Parliamentary Office.

As MSP for Shetland, Beatrice has been Shetland’s voice in Holyrood making sure the priorities of Shetlanders are heard loud and clear by the Scottish Government. Beatrice's passion is born out of her love for Shetland. Long before she was MSP, she worked supporting people across Shetland and giving a voice to those who needed it.
