“Seawinds is absolutely gorgeous - a very stylish and well kitted out property in a central but quiet location with views to die for. Despite some dreadful weather during our stay it was always a warm and homely place to come back to and rest. The kitchen was very well appointed. Ruth was an extremely responsive host and it was great to be able to visit her studio as well. I'd highly recommend staying here - it is a little more expensive than some Shetland accommodation options but well worth it.”

“We, a family with two children, spent a wonderful holiday in "Collaster A Traditional Shetland Crofthouse". The Crofthouse was very comfortably furnished and provided the comfort that we needed (kitchen, bathroom, living room, hallway, bedroom) and even a little bit more. Each of our children (14 and 10 years old) had their own little kingdom under the roof (beware of the steep stairs! Our daughter slipped and was slightly injured, luckily nothing bad happened.) The area is gorgeous for those who Seeking peace, relaxation, loneliness and beauty. The few people we encountered in Sandness were all very friendly, but you do not meet many. :-) Rather sheep and now and then you are awakened by the cock. From Sandness, which is quite centrally located in Shetland, we explored the island (s) from Sumburgh to Skaw. Our holiday will remain in the most beautiful memory, maybe we'll go there again. Then the Crofthouse in Collaster would be the first address we would ask for. The host Steven our very heartfelt thanks for his hospitality, even when we arrived the fridge was well stocked and everything was in perfect order.”
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...”
