The cottage faces landscaped gardens surrounded on three sides by fields and has a wonderful open outlook. Its location gives it a unique sense of privacy with the beach a five minute stroll away, while being only a short drive from the amenities of Lerwick.

Shetland has a huge range of fascinating ‘faces’ to offer you and caters for many interests.

Just learning how an island community with a history going back thousands of years has survived and flourishes on these islands is a fascination in itself.

Dramatic seascapes, birds and marine wildlife, archaeology, fiddle music, ponies, knitwear and the ‘Up Helly Aa Fire festival’ are some of the immediate associations that people make when they think of Shetland – but there is so much more.
