What’s nearby

If you want to explore as much of Shetland as possible but also want to be close to all the amenities of a vibrant town, then Hjaltland provides the perfect mix of town and country.

The house is located near the top of a gently sloping hill and adjoins a 9 hole golf course which is free to the public. A 2 minute walk and you reach the spectacular coastline with it’s abundant wildlife and birdlife and a 4 minute walk down the hill takes you directly to the main town centre and harbour front. There are various amenities such as shops, bars, cafes and restaurants all within walking distance and a short stroll takes you to the museum, library, Bowling Green and Flower Park and various other places of interest. The beautiful Sands of Sound Beach and the ancient Clickimin Broch are a 25 minute walk away, as is the superb Clickimin Leisure Complex which has an excellent swimming pool, squash courts, indoor bowling green and state-of-the-art gymnasium.

Overall an ideal choice for both tourist and business visitors alike!
