Establishment Overview

Fia Cottage was originally built in 1898 as a shop / post office to serve the local community. A telephone was installed around the early 1940s, one of the few phones in the area at the time. On 30th March 1942, during World War II, the phone was used to alert RAF Sumburgh that a bomber had been found crashed on nearby Fitful Head

The cottage offers an extremely high standard of self-catering accommodation for individuals, couples and families alike, sleeping 4/5.

The cottage is situated in the Quendale area at the southern end of Shetland, approximately 23 scenic miles from Lerwick. It is within easy reach of Sumburgh Airport (10 minutes by car).

Fia Cottage has every comfort and amenity necessary for a Shetland holiday, including: gas cooker with electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and a pulley system for airing clothes. Along with complimentary unlimited wifi, is a TV, DVD player, selection of DVDs, books and games for those rainy days. A small walled lawn is at the front and at the back of the cottage is a large secure garden with a rotary clothes dryer and a small vegetable plot from which our guests are welcome to use.

The location makes Fia Cottage a perfect base from which to explore the whole of Shetland and is only minutes away from the amazing Jarlshof, Quendale Mill and several of Shetland's best beaches within easy reach - Quendale Beach being just 10 minutes walk away. The cottage is ideally situated for hillwalking, cycling, bird watching and fishing at the nearby Peerie Spiggie Beach, where you can catch sea trout for your dinner.
