Establishment Overview

The Sands Self Catering Cottage is a traditional cottage on the west side of Shetland. The cottage has recently been refurbished while retaining some of its traditional character. It is situated on a working croft where you can enjoy the lambs playing in the sunny evenings. 

This is an ideal place to stay if you want peace and quiet along with beautiful views. 

There are lots of coastal walks nearby with spectacular cliffs and lots of wildlife which includes otters, seals, migrating and local birds and maybe even orcas. There is also an abundance of beautiful wild flowers and heather to admire in the summer months. 

Shetland can also provide some spectacular sunrises and sunsets and in the autumn/winter seasons you can often experience beautiful displays of the Northern Lights/Aurora Borealis, known locally as the Mirrie Dancers.

We ask that you arrive from 2.00pm on the day of arrival and vacate no later than 10.00am on the date of departure, unless otherwise arranged.

Smoking is not allowed in the cottage and we do not accept pets.
