We were here for two weeks and absolutely loved our stay. The cottage is perfect for two people and Pamela has thought of everything. We would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a superb cottage set in quiet and lovely countryside and close to the amenities of Scalloway.
This is the perfect spot for any couple visiting Shetland - we were there for a week and found the property to be beautifully decorated and equipped in a real picture perfect location just outside the town of Scalloway. Pamela was an excellent hostess, unobtrusive but quickly responsive to any questions or queries.
From a location perspective Scalloway is the perfect spot to base yourself to explore the islands of Shetland. Lerwick is only a 10 minute drive away for access to super markets etc. whilst you can drive to just about any other spot on the islands (some times with the aid of a ferry!) in about 60mins.
For nature watching we'd recommend Sumburgh Head at the southern tip and Hermannes on Unst. For walking Esha Ness and Muckle Roe both out in the west. For eating out, Fjara in Lerwick is fantastic as is Frankie's Fish & Chips in Brae.
Pamela has been so kind and helpful from the minute I inquired about her cottage
I bought a week as a gift for my parents
My dad and mum couldn’t fault the accommodation be location
One day I would like to visit
Can’t thank Pam enough
Stayed here for 3 nights over Easter this year. Beautifully restored traditional cottage in excellent location for exploring the islands. Has everything you need with a real home away from home feel - a perfect base. Owner was great, lots of good advice on making the most of our time. From the house you can be in Lerwick in a few minutes and only a short walk into Scalloway. Amazing views at every turn and if you like the outdoors, so much to explore. Who says it’s never sunny in Shetland? We came home with sun tans :) :) can’t wait to go back and will definitely be staying here again!
Pamela was an excellent host and the Croft house was perfect! A great location for exploring the Shetland Isles.
Absolutely no complaints. Perfect place to stay in Shetland as it's close to Scalloway centre and Lerwick. The croft has everything you need and more including torches and hi-vis jackets. Pamela was a great host and always available if we had questions.
