Shoreside self catering Cottage is a detached Croft House situated in an idyllic sea
 
front location just a few feet from the waters edge.  Built around 1863 on Shetlands
 
West coast  using local stone and wood from a grounded German cargo ship, this
 
cottage has fascinating story to tell. 
 
"the sound of silence and nature combining is so peaceful"
 
Surrounded by dry stone walls, green fields and water, this detached self catering
 
accommodation has uninterrupted views over the bay to Crabba Skerry, home to
 
many local Seals. To the front, a secluded stony beach leads to a small jetty allowing
 
access to the bay. The peacefulness is amazing, interrupted by the sound of Seals
 
playing or the cry of a Heron defending its fishing spot. You might even hear an Otter
 
whistling to its young, or the splash of a Sea Trout jumping for flies in the evening.
 
 
The Local Village
 
The village of Walls located just 2 miles West of the cottage has a village shop and
 
bakery which runs a tea room during summer months. The village hall, an important
 
local focal point is sometimes turned into a 'Fish & Chip Shop' on a Saturday night
 
to help boost hall funds. Watch out for the signs.
 
 
Four Seasons
 
The cottage is perfect for Autumn and Winter breaks too with a recently installed Multi
 
Fuel Stove to keep you cozy. It is also equipped with free Wifi access so you can
 
keep track on e-mails and even 'work from home' if you need to. During autumn and
 
winter you will be rewarded  with some of the most beautiful sunsets and starry night 
 
skies you could imagine, and some the most spectacular Auroraboralis displays to
 
be seen anywhere in the British Isles.
