The Hoop

Self Catering

The Hoop, Tangwick, Eshaness, Shetland, ZE2 9RS

    Robert Cheyne Turcan of Tangwick The Hoop offers tranquillity and comfort beyond your wildest dreams. The Turcan Family welcome you to their newly built home.

    I built this house in 2009 as a successor to The Haa, Tangwick (now Tangwick Haa Museum), which my family the Cheynes of Tangwick built shortly after they arrived in Shetland in the latter part of the 16th century and where they lived and carried on their businesses of landowning, trading (including smuggling and privateering) and fishing for the best part of 300 years.

    The house is built on the site of the old crofthouse of The Hoop, which was occupied for 200 years by the Thomson family of whom Tina Thomson was the last representative. She was a great character and a great friend. I hope she approves.
    Eshaness is a particularly special part of Shetland and my family and friends love coming here. I hope that visitors to this house will enjoy it too.

    Enjoying views over the west coast waters that offer un-ending opportunities of viewing fisherman at sea, stunning cliff scenery, diving gannets, seals, birdlife and much more. Take time to relax in front of the open fire with a glass of wine and a good book. Coming to The Hoop really means getting away from it all.
