“Coogrind Self Catering.”
Reviewed February 2, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Thanks so much to Carole. We have had an amazing stay and can't recommend this accommodation enough! If we are lucky enough to return to the Shetlands we wouldn't hesitate to book with you again. Again thanks for helping us have a great visit.

“Excellent accommodation with superb views”
Reviewed September 5, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The apartment is located in an area of great natural beauty with easy access to Lerwick and most areas of Shetland. There are many superb walks along nearby cliffs and close by are beautiful beaches. Birdwatchers will find much of interest. The accommodation is spacious for two with a huge comfortable double bed. It has all you need for a relaxing holiday and the owners are friendly and helpful. Recommended highly.

“Stay here!”
Reviewed August 8, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Everything at Coogrind was as good or better than advised. Carole was a wonderful host. She and her Dad even gave us a heads up twice when we could see whales from the patio or the front yard! We hope to return some day. I doubt there is a better place to stay in the Shetlands.

“Great position, fabulous views”

CooGrind is perfectly positioned to travel to all corners of the islands, the roads are much better than in most of England to getting about is easy and traffic is very light. The apartment is well-equipped and very comfortable, it is attached to the owners property with great views from the windows and patio area.The owners are excellent hosts, a great help when our (brand new) hire car sprang a fuel leek on their drive. We also had a very enthusiastic welcome from the little dog, Olly.
There is a beautiful beach (Meal beach) a few minutes walk away and a small , useful shop near the slipway a short walk into Hamnavoe village. Scalloway is 10-15 mins away and Leerwick 20-25 by car.
A feature of Shetland at this time of year is community events at the many community halls . We had fabulous tea and cake and soup at Bicton and Aith and Fish and Chips at the Burra hall near CooGrind. Visiting tourists are made very welcome, watch out for road signs and adverts in the weekly Shetland times.

“Couldn't leave slowly enough!”

Can only really echo the excellent reviews already given to Coogrind. Carole runs a great set up. Warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean with all the amenities you could need. Bed is indeed far too comfortable!

Location is also excellent for visiting Island.

Will certainly return as others have....if Carole has availability that is"
