Great welcome, in a calming venue with fantastic home style cooking with ample portions, sensibly priced. Alcohol licensed with fair selection and OK prices. Used by many locals for meals, has two menus, one for 'normal' and one for 'pushing the boat out' either is excellent but the fancier menu you need to give advanced notice to the chef which...

Spent one night here during a business visit to Sullom Voe Terminal - the room was very comfortable, hosts friendly and attentive and the food was very good. The guest house serves drinks with the evening meal and has a small but varied selection of wines, beers and spirits. Highly recommended, and I will return at some point I'm sure.

Drumquin was the perfect base for touring the north of Shetland, and perfect for a good night's rest and a very satisfying breakfast. Robert and Leslie are thoughtful and welcoming hosts, and their staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful women we met on our trip. Highly recommended!
