Holiday Rental House
The cottage is set back from the road up a private track and situated on the outskirts of Scalloway, the ancient historical capital of Shetland. The original stone and thatch building dates back to 1650 and has been extended over the last 150 years. We have recently totally renovated the cottage to incorporate more up to date facilities without losing the charm of a traditional Shetland croft house. Inside on the ground floor you have a combined living/dining/kitchen area. All modern kitchen appliances and a fully equipped kitchen let you cook up some delicious meals made with fresh local produce should you decide to stay in. The open plan space allows you to chat while you cook about what you hope to discover tomorrow.

All modern kitchen appliances and a fully equipped kitchen let you cook up some delicious meals made with fresh local produce should you decide to stay in. The open plan space allows you to chat while you cook about what you hope to discover tomorrow. A traditional fire surround and a working and welcoming multi fuel stove are the focal point of the room. Fill it (we provide all fuel) with traditional peat and curl up on the large comfy sofa after a day exploring. There is also a flat screen TV with freesat channels for your evening entertainment. Free WiFi provided. The modern compact shower room with WC and sink is also located on the ground floor. Essential toiletries and large fluffy towels are provided. Upstairs is the spacious inviting bedroom. It has twin aspect looking out the front up the Tingwall valley and the Lochs, out of the back skylight you can see across to Scalloway and down through East Voe. The comfortable and huge super-king bed has quality 100% cotton and anti-allergy bedding perfect for diving into after your day hiking. There is a pretty seating area outside your door that is bursting with colourful and fragrant flowers in the warmer summer months. This is ideal for enjoying a cheeky little glass of wine or for sitting out looking for the Northern Lights in the darker months. Just a 10 minute walk to Scalloway means you can leave the car behind to go to the local restaurant, café, bars, shops, Chinese take-away, swimming pool, museum and playing field. A bus service runs between Scalloway and Lerwick. Most parts of Shetland are accessible by bus from Lerwick. More

Wonderful little cottage, ideal for a couple. Spotlessly clean and with everything you might need, even a lovely little hamper waiting for us with a few essentials. Owner was very welcoming. Would highly recommend this property as a base for a break in Shetland.

About the neighbourhood
Scalloway in central Shetland is a small fishing village which still retains much of the character and charm of past times, with colourful fisherman's cottages looking out to some of the smaller isles and skerries. The castle which was built around 1600 is well worth a visit as is the museum where you will find a wealth of information about the Shetland bus, a wartime resistance movement taking wireless operators, armaments and combatants into Norway during WW11. Moore's slipway which was used to fix some of the boats on their return to Scalloway can still be seen today. There are two golf courses within a 5min drive and fishing is available in the Lochs that you can see from the house and many more throughout Shetland.
Getting around
For exploring the rest of Shetland and its islands it’s advisable to either bring a car or hire one here. You can pick one up at the airport, ferry terminal or in Lerwick. There are buses running from Scalloway about every hour (limited on a Sunday) and there is a local Taxi that will pick you up after a great night out listening to some live music in Lerwick and bring you back to you accommodation.
