Guest Comments

"This has been the highlight of our tour. We loved staying at this home and saw the wonderful sights of Shetland. Many thanks."

"Had a lovely time in Shetland and Harbour Villa. Made it to one of the islands in the north (Yell) and all the way down south to Sumburgh Lighthouse (great café). The accommodation was first class and beds really comfortable. Would definitely recommend both a holiday in Shetland and a stay here. "

Harbour Villa

This is a quality 4-bedroom detached villa with a large garden and magnificent harbour views. The property, which has a separate dining room/study for added comfort, is situated in a peaceful but central residential location by the sea in Lerwick’s old town.

The villa, which was recently refurbished to an extremely high standard, has full central heating, a wood-burning stove and quality solid oak/leather furniture throughout and is an ideal-sized property for families and larger groups looking for quality accommodation in the heart of Lerwick.

A short stroll along the seafront brings you to all local amenities, including local restaurants, the award winning Museum and Archives, Clickimin Leisure Centre, Mareel (state-of-the art cinema/music venue) and much more.
