Levenwick is a very scenic small village about 17 miles south of Lerwick, on the east side of the south Mainland of Shetland. It is part of the parish of Dunrossness.
The village is actually made up of several smaller settlements which include: North Punds, Gord, Netherton, Upperton, Stonybrake, and South Punds.
The Levenwick Health Centre provides medical support for the Dunrossness area, and the Overtonlea Residential Unit provides residential care for the elderly of the south Mainland.

In the literature of the isles, it is associated with George Stewart, author of the pioneering Shetland Fireside Tales, who lived here in his youth. Today Levenwick is home to a number of artists, including Amy Moncrieff, Anne Bain and James Bruce Thomason.
