A cosy stone built cottage, circa 1800, in a superb location on the outskirts of Lerwick. Gorgeous sea view, with the Sands of Sound beach just down the road and great access to coastal walks. Easy walking distance to Tesco and the Clickimin Leisure Complex, with Lerwick town centre only 1.25 miles away. There's a well equipped kitchen with a pully for drying clothes and also a good size living room. Mavine Cottage is a great base from which to explore all Shetland has to offer.
“Mavine Cottage has the best location we’ve yet found for our regular visits to Shetland. Looking south over Sound Voe and with the Sands of Sound beach a few minutes walk down the lane makes one feel part of the landscape like no other place we’ve stayed in Shetland. Waking to see the gannets and terns fishing just offshore and hearing the constant and soothing surf on the beach below is something we miss already now we’re home again. The cottage itself is actually a bit of a Tardis in that it is surprisingly spacious once inside with most things you might need including a handy pair of binoculars in the kitchen which proved the orca in the Voe to be a small fishing vessel..! Lol... We will be back next year...”
Babsies(named after the old lady whom used to reside there) is a traditional Shetland Croft house, nestled in a quiet little hamlet with stunning unspoilt sea views, Otters regularly swim a few hundred yards in front of the Croft house, Nesting has a local country hall with regular Sunday teas, there is also a playpark and Gutter(mud) kitchen, there is a shop, post office, garage, second hand store and a canoe club,
“Babsie’s is absolutely charming and beautifully situated. Though only about 20 minutes from Lerwick, you feel totally away from it all and in the most gorgeous setting. The cottage itself is cozy and charming and full of thoughtful touches, while still being thoroughly modern. We would definitely stay here again!”
Bright, modern and airy flat, right in the heart of Lerwick. Recently redecorated and refurbished, this flat is equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay. Big bay windows look out over the town's historic Hillhead - the perfect location for viewing the world-famous Up Helly Aa fire festival, as the spectacular torchlight evening procession starts from right outside, making this the ideal view point.
“The cosy cottage is exactly that, a very cosy space but one in which all the rooms are more than big enough to feel relaxed and comfortable. All needs are catered for from a lovely welcome pack to a fully equipped kitchen and satellite TV. The bedroom is spacious and there is even a hairdryer for anyone who forgets their own. We had a very warm welcome and there was lots of information about Lerwick and Shetland more generally to hand. Location wise, the cottage is perfect - close to the high street and lots of excellent cafes and restaurants. We would definitely go back.”
