Lerwick, Mainland, Shetland Islands, Scotland
The house sleeps four people and is 4 Star Rated by Visit Scotland. Ann Cleeves stayed here whilst doing research before writing the books the acclaimed drama series 'Shetland' are based on.

Live traditional music can be heard in the Lounge Bar near the bottom of Mounthooly Str...
