The space

Da Roost represents the finest in Shetland accommodation. Newly built and furnished to the highest specifications, the house is close to Shetland's best attractions including Jarlshof and the Shetland Lighthouse.

Five minutes drive from the Sumburgh airport. Right on the sea. The location just couldn't have been better. We had a wonderful stay. Comfy bed and the wood fire was the perfect way to end the night.
