– many reasons to return!

This superb self-catering holiday property is located in the beautiful coastal area of Fladdabister & Ocraquoy on the South Mainland of Shetland and is situated in a building adjacent to the owners house with excellent seaviews over the Bay of Ocraquoy and towards the island of Bressay.

What’s nearby

This property has the most perfect location for exploring the whole of Shetland.

Situated on Shetland’s South Mainland in the coastal area of Fladdabister & Ocraquoy. A five minute road walk takes you into the small village of Cunningsburgh where you will find a shop; village hall serving Sunday Teas (Summer months); knitwear shops; and a marina and small boat harbour.

Five miles further South takes you to the village of Sandwick which offers a shop, Post Office & bakery; hotel; visitor centre; modern swimming pool and playground; and ferry transport across to the island of “Mousa” with it’s amazing ancient Broch.

A short drive further South takes you to the beautiful sandy beaches of Levenwick & St Ninians Isle in Bigton, the Sumburgh Head Nature Reserve, the ancient settlement of “Jarlshof” and the excavations at Scatness to name but a few!

Lerwick is an easy 10 minute drive North with all the activities and amenities you would expect from such a vibrant Capital.

And remember, it’s less than an hour’s drive from here to the most northerly tip of Shetland and from where small inter-island ferries can take you to the North Isles of Yell, Unst, Fetlar and Skerries for the day!

Very comfortable. A perfect place from which to
explore the magic of Shetland.
