300 year old cottage, connected to our home, but completely self contained with own front door. 2 minutes from sea. Wonderful wildlife. 1 twin-beds bedroom, 1 single bedroom and shower room on first floor. Room for folding bed in sitting room.
“The cottage is located in a very quiet place. Everything was very clean and tidy. Catriona and Rob were very friendly and simple people, who were always ready to help and answer my questions about the surrounding area. The isla is tiny but still there is a lot to see and to do. I really enjoyed my stay and I hope to go back there again! Cheers!”

“I had a fantastic stay at the Shorestation; the location is stunning and perfect for hiking and walking or enjoying nature and wildlife. Tony is a great host and an excellent cook; his vegetarian meals are delicious and his homemade bread is simply unbeatable. I especially enjoyed the long conversations with him at the kitchen table in his cosy kitchen. Tony knows a lot about the area and he will definitely do his best to make you feel at home and make your stay an unforgettable experience. It‘s also easy to reach the place if you are travelling by bus. Just let the driver know that you would like to go to the Shorestation and he or she will take you there. The room is extremely spacious and the view is extraordinary. I can highly recommend Tony and I cannot wait to return to the Shorestation. It has been the best experience with Airbnb so far.”
A cosy, tranquil one-bedroom croft house situated in the north of Shetland in an area called Sullom. It is an excellent location for exploring what the north has to offer and only a 40 minute drive to the main town of Lerwick. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I really hope you enjoy your stay here and look forward to welcoming you!
“What a fabulous place, great location and Josie is a great host. The Croft house is quite remote but Josie provides first class directions that make it almost impossible to go wrong. The location has great views and is ideal for those wanting a quiet getaway. However, Brae is less than 15 minutes away for any supplies you may need. Perfect location to explore the northern parts of Shetland, and Toft ferry terminal for access to Yell and Unst is less than 30 minutes away. Even the south, eg Sumburgh, is only a little over an hour. The house has everything you need and is well equipped, and the sofa is incredibly comfortable. An ideal place for one or two people. Josie was incredibly quick to reply to messages. One of the best places I’ve stayed at and will definitely stay again”
