What a fabulous first trip (but not the last) to Shetland. Wonderfully comfortable house and amazing views and sunsets. The weather has been great and as a result have been able to get out and walk and see lots of wildlife - red throated divers, pilot whales and otters - especially the two that put on a 30 minute show for us on the rocks just outside the house! We will be back.”
