The balcony above the living area has 2 twin beds and a chest of drawers, while downstairs there is a wardrobe, and a futon sofa, which folds out for a double bed.
The kitchen corner has a fridge-freezer and combination microwave oven and there is also a double gas burner, iron and board and all dishes, cutlery etc.
The bathroom has a shower, washing machine and a composting toilet.
North Hamarsland is a certified organic holding of 41 hectares, most of which is heather hill with grass in-by for lambing and cutting for silage.
We have 10 Shetland ewes and their lambs, and two Shetland kye in the summer.
Two polytunnels and gardens provide salad stuff and vegetables, and home for two free-range chickens.
Organic vegetables and salads are available in season, and fresh organic lamb can also be supplied.
Ask to see our organic fleeces and yarns.
The conservatory enjoys a westerly aspect. There are also places to sit in the garden; you choose according to the wind direction! Alternatively, take walks through the heather clad hills or relax at the ‘banks broo’ to look for otters.
