Holiday Rental House
The accommodation we provide is in the small fishing village of Scalloway which is situated on the west side of mainland Shetland, 6 miles west from the main town of LERWICK and a 35 minute drive from Sumburgh Airport (approx. 26 miles). On one side we have open fields with either sheep or Shetland Ponies grazing with Scalloway Museum on the other side - a few steps down the street is the ancient ruined Scalloway Castle which is now owned and managed by Scottish Natural Heritage. ...The accommodation we provide is in the small fishing village of Scalloway which is situated on the west side of mainland Shetland, 6 miles west from the main town of LERWICK and a 35 minute drive from Sumburgh Airport (approx. 26 miles).

About the neighbourhood
The village of Scalloway has the following places to eat: The Cornerstone - 4 minute walk Da Haaf Restaurant - 15-20 minute walk (Both highly recommended) TWO grocery shops/knitwear shop - 4 minute walk Swimming Pool/Leisure Centre - 6 minute walk
Getting around
We have a good bus service between Scalloway and the main town of Lerwick (every 1/2 hour). To travel by bus to anywhere else within the islands is also possible with all services leaving from Lerwick. My personal recommendation would be to have a hire car - these are available at the Ferry Terminal and at Sumburgh Airport (prior booking advised). I
