Aesthus Cottage: Sandyburn, Vidlin, Shetland, ZE2 9QB

The Area

The cottage, with excellent sea views, sits on a working farm rearing pure Shetland sheep and beef cattle. There is a small marshland loch which is overlooked by one of the upstairs bedrooms where many birds nest. Otters, seals and hares are some of the wildlife seen in this area.

About ½ hours drive from Lerwick brings you to this lovely cottage, only 2 miles from our excellent local shop. Also convenient for ferries to Whalsay, Out Skerries and the northern isles of Shetland. A bus service to Lerwick - 6 days per week - runs from Vidlin 1.5 miles from the cottage.

The weather in Shetland can be unpredictable, so bring waterproofs and good walking shoes if you intend doing any hill-walking, etc. However, the peace and quiet, the light for painting and photography and of course, the scenery certainly makes up for the weathers unpredictability.
