Gord Guest House
Gord BnB is at the heart of Fetlar, the garden of the Shetlands reachable by taking two ferries from Unst and Yell. The property is a perfect base for those who want to experience all of what the Shetland Islands offer.
Explore the island, making the most of the fantastic roads for finding the hot spots or use the many ferries that connect you to the rest of the islands. You have so much to take in; Juliet and Lucy would be happy to offer their knowledge to guide your decision making.
Gord BnB has two twin rooms and one double room; all rooms are en-suite with marvellous views over the sea. There is also a lounge area for sitting and relaxing before a freshly cooked homemade meal. It is a home away from home for weary travellers who are tired after experiencing the best of what Scotland has to offer.

Fetlar has 63 residents, and Shetland itself only has approximately 22,000 residents. The nearest town of any size is Lerwick on the main island of Shetland. To reach Lerwick, you need to take two ferry rides. The appeal of Fetlar is the seclusion; you can immerse yourself into the rural landscape and step away from society.
Walking: Fetlar is truly wonderful to ramble around, with some great terrain and better views, it is a perfect way to spend a few hours of your day. The island has some very special walks, including The Urie Walk, The Roundhouse Walk, Strandburgh Ness Walk and The Snap Walk. Juliet and Lucy would be more than happy to offer guidance to walkers who cannot choose which to walk first.
Fetlar Interpretive Centre, the island museum: This is the place to go for all information regarding Fetlar. With detailed maps and brochures illuminating the island and its attractions, it is a great spot to get to know your surroundings. With the bonus of free WIFI, it is well worth popping by.
Funzie: This area is not only beautiful, but it is also geologically fascinating with stones that have undergone millions of years of movement on its glorious beach. Look out into the water to see sea stacks and skerries as well as some fantastic wildlife.
Brough Lodge: The abandoned home of the Nicolson family who were the major landowners of Fetlar and responsible for the early clearances, there are some great walks around here, allowing you to fully take in the area.
Tresta Beach: The award-winning beach has stunning cliffs and calm waters. It’s easily accessible and is a great way to spend a few hours with family and friends.
