Certainly the best self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in! Great central location, welcome pack, fully equipped and more. A big thank you to Jackie, Erik and the girls.

Absolutely the best house we have ever stayed in. We felt very homely from the first moment. Thank you very very much, to Jackie, Erik, Cheryl, Rhona and Lisa for all the kindness and friendship! We will enjoy it again next year!!! Shetland is beautiful and full of nice people! The nature is indescribably nice! A perfect holiday!

There is so much to do in Shetland, no matter what your interests or reasons for visiting. Whether you want to get outdoors and explore, to take part in activities or tours, or if you just want to sit, relax and enjoy peacefulness - Shetland will impress.

We would encourage you to take a look at the Visit Shetland website for ideas, information and to find out more about what you can experience in Shetland. Also, our Activities and Attractions and Useful Information pages have even more resources to get you started on planning your trip.
