Kalfordhame Bed and Breakfast


Kalfordhame, Sandness, Shetland, ZE2 9PL

    Kalfordhame is a small, luxury Bed & Breakfast in the remote West side of Shetland. Because we only have one guest bedroom, we are able to offer peace & quiet, and the very best in service.

    Kalfordhame is a small, luxury, four star Bed & Breakfast deep in the remote West side of Shetland. Hidden in what has been described as Europe’s last true wilderness, we are ideally placed for walking, bird & wildlife watching, or simply enjoying the peace of our wild land and seascapes.

    To our guests we offer a large double or twin en-suite room, with separate shower and extra-large bath, a private lounge, and the very best of service.

    Enjoy our (very) full Scottish breakfast (always cooked fresh), and if you like, in the evening, our three course dinner, made with only the very best of local ingredients.

     We honestly believe you cannot find better accommodation in Shetland, so when you visit – give us a try.

    Road Directions

    We are about 45 minutes by road from the ferry terminal in Lerwick, or an hour from Sumburgh airport.

    From the ferry terminal turn right on to the main road north. Sandness is signed to the left about 4 miles out of Lerwick at Tingwall. Just follow that road for 20 miles or so until turning right at Bridge of Walls (signed Sandness). When you arrive in Sandness about 6 miles later turn right at the village hall signposted Bousta. We are the second house on the left (there’s a sign outside). Don’t worry if you get lost – anybody will tell you where we are .

    To find us from the airport follow the main road north to Lerwick. Drive through Lerwick until you get to the ferry port on the left, and then follow the directions above.

    Public Transport Directions

    It’s easy to get to Shetland.

    By air -

    There are up to ten daily flights from the UK mainland. You can choose to come through Aberdeen (65 minutes), Inverness (via Kirkwall in Orkney, 100 minutes) Edinburgh (90 minutes) and Glasgow (90 minutes), all connecting with London and other major European cities. The main arline serving Shetland is Flybe.


    By sea – Northlink Ferries sail from Aberdeen seven nights a week, year-round, arriving in Lerwick early the following morning. The voyage north aboard these large, comfortable, cruise-style ships makes a relaxing start to your holiday. Cruising up the coast of Shetland on a sunny morning gives a stunning first glimpse of our islands.
