A newly renovated stone built house right on the beach in Reawick, West mainland in Shetland. The house has been restored to a high standard making it a warm and cosy retreat and base to explore Shetland and its stunning wildlife. There are spectacular views from every room so armchair birdwatching is an option! Otters and seals are often seen in the bay and there is access to coastal walks right on the doorstep.

The space
The house is accessed from the back straight into the utility room where you can leave your coats and muddy boots. The utility room has a butler sink, washing machine and separate toilet. This leads onto the bright and sunny kitchen which has views over the neighbouring hills. The kitchen is well equipped for all your self catering needs with a electric induction cooker, fridge/freezer and pine table and chairs.

The kitchen leads to a dining/living area with a large dining table, bookshelves with a selection of local interest books and novels, games etc. There is a sofa bed for guests to use and views over the bay.

A small corridor leads to the downstairs bathroom and large super king size bedroom with adjoining conservatory. The bathroom has a shower and roll top bath. The conservatory is a perfect spot to sit and watch the local beach and bird life sheltered from the wind.

Upstairs there is a double bedroom, bathroom with shower and large living room, again with views across the bay.

Where you’ll be

Shetland Islands, Scotland, United Kingdom

Reawick is on the West Mainland of Shetland which is known as the sunny side! Don’t let this fool you though, despite beautiful sunny days, the sea is always cold. You may want to consider a wetsuit if planning water activities.

Reawick is a small crafting community with a beautiful beach and clifftop walks on your doorstep. There are a few houses scattered around and the ‘big house’ on the hill behind The Taing is a recognisable landmark which was the lairds house.

It is 25 mile/40 minutes drive from Lerwick where you will find shops, restaurants and supermarkets. A local convenience store about 10 minutes away in Bixter.
