300 year old cottage, connected to our home, but completely self contained with own front door. 2 minutes from sea. Wonderful wildlife. 1 twin-beds bedroom, 1 single bedroom and shower room on first floor. Room for folding bed in sitting room.

The space

Unst is the northernmost island in the UK with a population of about 650.

Guest access

One bedroom has twin beds, the other has one single bed. New beds bought in 2017.

Interaction with guests

It's up to guests whether they want to be sociable - we are next door, but you have the cottage to yourself if you want peace and quiet.

Other things to note

There are three decent shops - the nearest about a mile away, including the post office and petrol station. But if you want fancy groceries or unusual fruit or veg, bring them with you! The shops are open 09.00-17.00 Monday-Saturday, so if you are arriving in the evening, please bring food with you.
We have cats. They do not go in the cottage, but may be in and around it. (Also ducks, chickens, and - at some times of year - Shetland ponies.)

Thank you for your hospitality! The cottage was an excellent place to stay for exploring Unst. If I make it back to the Shetland Islands in the future I'd definitely try and stay here again! Also the ponies next door were a plus :)

This croft house is cosy and comfortable and I found it to be in a great location for exploring all of unst. The host family are really lovely people and will help in any way. You can be right at home here.

Fantastic base for exploring Unst. Great little cosy cottage with some beautiful walks nearby. Loved the neighbours (chickens and shetland ponies). Thanks for a great holiday

Look no further this is the perfect place to explore Unst. Catriona and Rob are very friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage has everything you need to relax after a long day exploring the island it is cosy, private and quiet. There are several options for food shopping all within a 5 min drive. Highly recommended and will definitely visit again. Die Unterkunft ist perfekt und hat alles was man braucht nach einem langen Tag auf Unst. Catriona und Rob sind sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Es hat diverse Einkaufsmöglichkeiten alle innerhalb 5min Fahrzeit. Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens Empfehlen und hoffe bald wieder nach Unst zurückzukehren.

We had a lovely stay at this cottage in Unst, sadly all too brief. The accommodation is well equipped yet still very cosy. Lovely duck eggs for breakfast. We really hope to be able to return for a bit longer soon!

We enjoyed our stay at Catriona's cottage. She, her husband, and daughter could not have been kinder. It was a very quiet and restful place to spend our nights on Unst. The location was good, with easy access to local shops in nearby Baltasound, and a pleasant drive to Hermaness, the main place we wanted to visit on Unst. Wifi and cable TV were a plus, and fresh eggs and complimentary use of laundry facilities added to our comfort and enjoyment. We would certainly choose to stay there again if we should return to Unst.
