Offers Over £70,000



Semi-detached three bedroom house situated in the remote and picturesque area of Lunnaness on the east side of Shetland. This property presents a great opportunity to add value by completing essentials repairs and some renovation works. 

The Accommodation consists of a kitchen, living room, study/bedroom, porch and bathroom on the ground floor. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms. 

Other accommodation comprises a store/utility room on the ground floor and a room and shower room at attic level. The room and shower room in the attic above the extension have not been included in the main list of habitable accommodation because the design and the access arrangement by ladder are unsatisfactory. This is a relatively recent alteration which would not meet building standards. Other alterations and extensions are historic. information regarding the alterations can be obtained from the Shetland Islands Council. 

The walls of the property are roughcast externally and may be a mixture of stone, mass concrete and concrete blockwork. The roof is covered with 'Decra' tiles. Heating is provided by an oil-fired boiler with wet radiator system. 

Externally there is a private driveway off the main road. A garden path leads around the property and into a well-established overgrown garden at the front. 


The property occupies a coastal location in mostly rural surroundings in the scattered community of Lunna. The position is approximately three miles north of the small village of Vidlin and about twenty-seven miles north of Lerwick which is the main town in Shetland. Vidlin has a local shop which also sells fuel, and the local village hall are situated about 3 miles from the house, about half a mile further on is the local primary school and a marina.


As you approach Vidlin take the next left immediately after the turn off for the shop. This is the road into Lunna. The house is approx 3 miles in the road. You will go past the salmon shore base and around the corner you will come to Hamnavoe on your left hand side.
