Herrislea House is situated just five minutes’ drive north from Lerwick, in Shetland’s Tingwall Valley, and has earned quite a reputation as the perfect home from home for its visitors. The hotel is an excellent central base from which to explore Shetland’s islands. Ask the hotel staff about loch and sea fishing, golf, boat trips, walking and cycling routes, Shetland’s past and – very much in the present – its state-of-the-art sport and leisure facilities. The hotel is also next door to Tingwall Airport with flights to the outer islands of Shetland. This makes Herrislea House Hotel the perfect place to stay if you plan on exploring Fair Isle, Foula, Papa Stour or Skerries.

Situated in the hamlet of Veensgarth at the north end of the Tingwall valley and lochs.

We offer a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in a pleasant, mainly agricultural area.

We have 9 individually designed en-suite rooms, each one with its own décor. All rooms are non-smoking, each has good wifi access and a mini bar with the usual TV, coffee/tea, telephone. With hair dryers and irons available.

We are happy to advise on the many excellent local dining options and we also can offer snacks if you require. We aim to use local products and suppliers as far as possible.
We grow our own Shetland Lamb and some Beef and this is supplemented with meat from Scalloway Meat Co. who specialise in supplying local meat and produce, complemented with local seafood from Blydoit Fish Shop, also in Scalloway. We offer Shetland Unst Beers and Gin with a selection of malt whisky from Scotland.
Tingwall Valley is the site of the ancient Viking Parliament or ‘Ting’, situated on a Holm in the Tingwall Loch which is also full of Brown Trout. Tingwall has its own 9-hole golf course and Shetland full golf course is a mile on the other side of the hotel. Down the valley is the ancient Scalloway Castle of Earl Patrick Stewart, who enslaved the local population to build his seat. There is a wonderful small museum next to the castle.
