TWO BEDROOM SELF-CATERING
PROPERTY IN SHETLAND
Our family friendly property is here waiting for you, your family and friends. Our accommodation is close to Lerwick harbour and central amenities.
Hansel Cottage provides a very well equipped base from which to explore Lerwick and the stunning scenery and amazing wildlife of the Shetland Islands. Relax in front of the stove, watch the peat or logs burn, enjoy a glass of wine and recount the day’s adventures as you sit back and relax in the tastefully appointed rooms. Hansel, Old Norse for a promise, promises you a comfortable stay and a warm welcome from owners Averill and Graham. Born and bred in Lerwick, they are the ideal hosts, passionate about Shetland with a wealth of local knowledge. Both have been involved with a local walking group for many years, have led and researched walks and put together walking articles for a local magazine. Averill is a qualified Scottish Tour Guide, Green Badge, and has completed World Host training. Graham holds a BELA certificate. Both can offer suggestions for special places to visit, things to see and do and can give you an insight into the hidden corners of Shetland. They are planning a new venture “Explore Shetland” offering guided walks and tours. Get in touch for more information.
