Our visit to the Shetlands has been one of the most peaceful, relaxing and breathtaking adventures of our lives. The scenery and weather has been idyllic. Most of all the house was spectacular and became like a home from home. On our return to Glasgow we take a little peace of paradise back in our hearts.”

A fabulous lodge with everything we could possibly need and more. Thanks. What a perfect setting, beautiful views and an ever changing skyline. Perfect!”

First visit to the Shetlands – fantastic in every respect!”

Shetland already has a place in our hearts as the most wonderful and beautiful place on this earth. Now “Ingasetter” is added to that as the perfect location to be based to enjoy it. Thank you Rebecca and John for providing such a comfortable and luxurious holiday accommodation. See you again in the future.”

This has been a truly memorable holiday, from the welcome and accommodation – which excelled anything we have experienced before – to the magic and awe of Shetland. We have loved every minute. Thank you.”

From the seals & porpoises forming part of our bay view, to the beautiful oak furniture and Egyptian cotton sheets, Ingasetter has been the perfect backdrop for our honeymoon. It has been wonderfully relaxing and peaceful.”

Ingasetter has lived up to our expectation of 5 Star accommodation, it really has been home-from-home. The gifts in the fridge and the dressing gowns and slippers were those extras that made all the difference. We’ve had a very relaxing holiday and will miss the daily saunas!”

Brilliant accommodation and a fantastic welcome. Stunning location and watching the seals in the bay at the bottom of the garden has been one of the many highlights.”

A completely magical and dreamlike break for us all -
seals, otters, porpoises and more stars in the sky
than we imagined possible”

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Very comfortable, warm & relaxed in this gorgeous chalet with a view we would like to take away in the suitcases.

Thank you for a wonderful time here in this excellent house with a view to the sea, which we will always remember….We have managed to forget everything about our work and everyday life in Denmark, and that’s the best you can say about a good holiday.

A lovely chalet in a stunning location!! We’ve visited several of the Scottish islands over the past 4 years and Shetland and the chalet both exceed everything so far. This place has provided us with the final thing to tick off on our “wildlife to see in Britain” list….OTTERS. Go to the beach just below the chalet, close to the small waterfall, wait, be patient and be amazed!!

We had a “fine” time. Met lots of friendly Shetlanders. Shetland was more and more spectacular with every turn we made. We spent much time watching the seals and birds in the bay below. Our time here has been a joy. We will definitely be back!

What a view to wake up to and only a stones throw from great days out….I even managed to catch a trout in the Fladdabister loch.

A lovely chalet with virtually everything we needed and more! Stunning views and a great central base for exploring Shetland.

Again it was a wonderful stay in Shetland. We love this cosy chalet, the friendly seals down at the beach and we even saw otters from the window- playing in the sea.

We love Shetland! You just can’t beat the view from the lounge window – we have seen all sorts of “wild” goings on - starlings defending territory, newborn lambs at play, seals basking, rabbits, swallows, and lots of other birds. And best of all – otters in the bay!”

Our third visit – can I say more? As good as ever.”

Chalet as lovely as we remembered from 3 years ago – nice to see how well it has been looked after.

The Shetlands are magical…keep a sharp eye out for porpoises & killer whales….the seabird colonies are brilliant and the number of birds are hard to take in. Beaches are excellent and just a few miles south is the lovely beaches of Levenwick & St Ninians Isle, keep an eye open for curious seals.

We searched for a quiet holiday with lots of nature, no rushing & no stress. We found it here in Shetland.

We all enjoyed different aspects of Shetland….I was lucky enough to see 3 killer whales at Cunningsburgh with mum. Dad missed them..

We have fallen in love with Shetland and look forward to returning when the birds return to nest. Up Helly Aa was a spectacle not to be missed. Watching the seals & walking the cliffs has been a delight. The really nice thing is that having spent the day outdoors braving whatever weather Shetland could throw at us, we could come back to a warm & comfortable “home from home” to relax in.

We enjoyed our stay in Shetland very much! Thank you for the beautiful chalet – so well equipped & beautiful views! We saw birds, dolphins, seals, ponies…it was fascinating – great coastline, great sands, great golf courses!" </p

Location, location, location!

Wonderful place. Wonderful chalet. Walking & cycling to Sumburgh Head, Jarlshof, St Ninians Isle, & the local shore. Seals, fulmars, puffins, orcas, great skuas, early purple & common spotted orchids.

This was the fifth of a series of holidays during which we plan to visit all of the accessible Scottish islands… date we give Shetland top spot. We covered at least 95% of the (excellent) roads and were rewarded by the most magnificent and beautiful landscapes & seascapes it is possible to imagine (and we are world travellers).

A lovely home-from-home with unbeatable views. We came to Shetland for the literary festival & would have liked to have stayed longer…

A beautiful chalet, very easy to relax in and return to. The seals in the bay were our top experience.

It has been a fabulous week, warm, cosy and so comfortable in the chalet, 54 different species of bird, gorgeous scenery, friendly people, and empty roads…THIS IS PARADISE!

A wonderful chalet with a wonderful view

Wonderful chalet and a wonderful place to visit.

Fantastic accommodation and view out of this world.

Finding the chalet was probably the most important coincidence of my trip to Shetland. It provided the perfect home base for the relaxation & exploration I was heading for. Great surroundings, wonderful people. Thanks for a perfect time.” 

We have had a wonderful week…we have walked, swum & sightseen in a most beautiful island….far exceeding our expectations..”

Well equipped & very warm chalets perfect for keeping out the blizzards. We had a fantastic time at Up Helly Aa during a week filled with snow. Amazing scenery & a highly atmospheric week & the bird-watchers amongst us saw 67 species of bird all good.”

I first came to Shetland when I was a boy in 1955…the call of the islands never left me & we returned 10 years ago & have been back frequently since. This chalet is by far the best self-catering we have enjoyed anywhere. Everything has been carefully thought our and the result is an exceptionally happy holiday.”

We came in search of stone-age man! Sites have more than matched our expectations, people everywhere so friendly & mines of information.”

Det har varet en dejlig ferie og skon nature som vi har nyt meget.”

So after almost a month of travel around Shetland, these are our highlights:-

Favourite islands: - Mousa, Noss, Out Skerries, Foula, Fair Isle (but others are good too)!

Favourite walks:- Eshaness, Fethaland, Hermaness & Muckle Flugga, St Ninians Isle, Muckle Roe.

Favourite food:- Montys, Lerwick; Da Haaf, Scalloway.
