From this peaceful setting, visitors can enjoy magnificent views of the surrounding area. There is an abundance of wildlife, flora and fauna right on the doorstep so any walk will be rewarded by the amazing sights and sounds of the islands.
Nortower Lodges offer luxury accommodation on a working Shetland croft. The lodges built in 2012 (Boitan and Holsas) are located in the beautiful coastal area of Aithsetter, on the South Mainland of Shetland.
Nortower Lodges would like to make this holiday extra special by introducing some aspects of traditional Shetland crofting life.
We rear our own animals including sheep and cattle. All our livestock and produce are used in our newly opened Farm Shop & Cafe which is also on our croft. Beef, Lamb, Pork, Eggs, Mutton, Fruit & Vegetables are featured daily on our menus and a discount is in place for our guests to use.
A holiday on a working croft is sure to be a great experience! If you'd like to visit the croft, animals, fields and meadows - please let us know - we'd be delighted to show you around. We will give you a true Shetland welcome and a real taste of traditional island life. We are sure you will find Nortower the perfect choice for a quiet relaxing holiday
