Sandwick, Mainland, Shetland Islands, Scotland
The cottage has a three star rating and sleeps four people.

The cottage is a stone's throw from the sea and in an excellent spot for viewing seals, otters and seabirds. It is in Leebitton, Sandwick which is twelve miles from Lerwick. Car parking is right outside the front door. The shop/bakery/post office is around ¾ of a mile away. News of local events are posted on the shop door. Nearby is Sandwick’s modern swimming pool including steam room. A short walk takes you to the village of Hoswick where you can call along the Warp and Weft Visitor Centre to view the knitwear and local crafts before relaxing in the cafe over a cup of tea or a bowl of soup after your swim.

When at Leebitton it is a must to organise a trip to the Island of Mousa (opposite the cottage) to see the world’s largest and best preserved pictish broch.
