Tingwall ( Old Norse : Þingvöllr = field of the parliament or "thing), is in the centre of the Shetland Mainland, and extends north as far as Girlsta. The Tingwall valley extends north from near Scalloway to Laxfirth.

Tingwall includes the settlements of Veensgarth and Gott, and the Vallafield housing estate.

Tingwall was the home from the 1920s of the literary brothers Laurence I. Graham and the late John J. Graham.
