Home away from home
It is a little tricky to find when you rely on car navigation systems, so a quick call to the owner resulted in a car escort to the accomodation. The apartment was delightful and the support offered by the owner was wonderful. The apartment was large and well furnished. I would definitely recommend this venue as a holiday destination.

Better than expected with good bed , shower and internet. Will book this again rather than use the overpriced worn out Lerwick hotels.
