    A colour TV with DVD and VCR is provided and a plentiful supply of books for all ages, a few videos and some games.

    The cottage, with excellent sea views, sits on a working farm rearing pure Shetland sheep and Beef cattle. There is a small marshland loch which is overlooked by one of the upstairs bedrooms where many birds nest. Otters, seals and hares are some of the wildlife seen in this area. Aesthus is only about 6 miles from Lunna House, well worth a visit and which played a major part in "The Shetland Bus". Also we have "The Cabin", a small museum, mostly of military memrabelia, on the road to Vidlin.

    About half an hour's drive from Lerwick brings you to this lovely cottage, only 2 miles from our excellent local shop and Post Office. Also convenient for ferries to Whalsay, Out Skerries and the northern isles of Shetland.

    We are sure that you will find this area very interesting and welcoming. We look forward to seeing you.
