Lerwick, Mainland, Shetland Islands, Scotland
The house sleeps four people and is 4 Star Rated by Visit Scotland. Ann Cleeves stayed here whilst doing research before writing the books the acclaimed drama series 'Shetland' are based on.

We loved the attractive, cozy house. Its location could not have been better for waterfront, restaurants, shops, museums, and library. The street is quaint and quiet. Everything was clean and convenient. The owners are delightful. We attended the Shetland Folk Festival and had a fabulous two weeks here!

Management response:

Thank you Jim and Heather for your kind review of our house. It was lovely to meet you both and hope to see you again Many Thanks Margaret

I booked this accommodation for two colleagues visiting Lerwick on business and communication prior and during the stay were excellent as were the meet and greet service arrangements.

The house is welcoming, clean and very comfortable and my colleagues would recommend to anyone visiting Lerwick.

Their special thanks to Margaret who made their stay very smooth and most enjoyable.

Reviewed 2 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The house was clean, comfortable and pleasantly warm (don’t know how as the radiators were never hot when I touched them!). The TV, video, DVD / CD player provided entertainment if you wanted to stay in. Beds were comfortable and bathroom well equipped. The kitchen was also well equipped and although compact was perfectly adequate for a holiday.We even entertained guests with no problem.
The house is on a narrow lane which leads down to the centre of Lerwick via the Lounge Bar (with its local musicians) nevertheless it was very quiet and peaceful. In the other direction, the Clickimin and Islesburgh centres are within easy walking distance.

Management response:

Thanks Micheal & Liz for your kind review. Were glad you found the house comfortable and warm. Our heating is from the waste to energy plant in Lerwick which provides very efficient district heating for the town. Thanks for choosing our accommodation and hope to see you in the future. Thanks Margaret.
