Lynne and Jim are fantastic hosts - their enthusiasm for the Shetlands is unsurpassed! Each day they would offer us ideas on where we could travel and what to see. The room and ensuite were small but contained everything you needed. Jim helped us with our cases and told us where we could park our car which was much appreciated.... More

I spent 6 nights at the above venue. Jim and Lynne could not have been more welcoming. My room was spotless with a newly decorated en suite. The breakfasts were the best I have ever had, the choices of fruit, Lynnes's porridge, and full Scottish breakfast are to die for. You are a 1 minute walk to the harbour, and... More

We stayed for 3 nights and our room was very comfortable. Lynne and Jim are excellent hosts and we were made to feel very welcome. Jim gave us some very valuable advice on where to go / what to see and how to get there. Breakfast was beautiful and Lyndsay said that Lynne's porridge was the best that she has... More

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here this year and it is still as brilliant. Spotless rooms, and the Breakfast is fantastic, did not need anything else to eat the rest of the day. Owners are so friendly you feel like part of the family.
