Its seems, this is a best В&B, which I stay all over the Scotland. Very comfortable rooms. Friendly owners, always ready to help. Very tasty breakfasts. I have stayed here three times, and each time you want to come back again.

I am pretty sure I won't be able to express well enough how fabulous it was to stay with Beth and Ian. We found them by pure luck and lucky we were. Our room was perfect....comfy beds with heated pad, private bathroom, two chairs with footstools and a futon couch. We had electric kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits and milk in... More

We decided to return to Shetland, and this particular establishment, having had such a great holiday here around 8 years ago. We were so pleased to be able to stay with Beth and Ian once again. You never feel as though you are imposing, no matter how often you pop down to make enquiries. Our room was large and comfortable,... More

Upon arriving, we were greeted with a hug. The warm welcome continued throughout our stay. Beth and Ian have a beautiful home. Our room was spacious with more than ample storage space and beautiful views of the bay. It was soothing and wood paneled, and every night we sank into a soft, comfortable bed. Beth and Ian are native Shetlanders... More

A friend and I stayed with Beth and Ian Cummings for five days during Shetland Wool Week, October 2014. From the email answering my enquiry to the minute we said goodbye we couldn't have had more care, comfort and consideration. I felt we were part of the community, even part of the family at times when we were invited to... More

If you want a place that ticks every box in relation to staying in a B & B book in with Beth and Ian at Winward and you are in for a real treat. Their hospitality is a perfect blend of open friendliness and discrete privacy. The accommodation is thoughtfully comfortable and spotlessly clean. You have a choice of anything... More

We were really pleased that we read all these good reviews for Beth and Ian's very modern home, Windward B & B, and therefore booked for 8 consecutive nights in August. We agree with everyone that this is like being in your own home - in fact better! Just a few extras to add. Things they do that others usually... More

Recently returned from our second stay with Beth and Ian and loved it just as much as the first time. They are wonderful hosts and go out of their way to make your stay as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Our room was very comfortable with everything that we needed. It's rewarding to sit in the conservatory, enjoy a leisurely,... More
