Gruttin, Dale, Voe, Shetland, ZE2 9PT

Offers Over £60,000



Detached one-and-a-half storey traditional four bedroom house set in a private elevated site with panoramic views of Dales Voe. This property is full of charm and character but would benefit from renovation and modernization which is reflected in the price. ‘Gruttin’ is set in an established garden with it’s own driveway, garden, attached shed and separate vegetable plot.

The property is mostly of stone construction under a pitched timber roof with a covering of fibre cement slates. Heating is provided by electric storage and panel heaters and supplemented by a ‘Rayburn’ in the kitchen.

This is a great opportunity to acquire a charming house in a beautiful location with the potential to become a lovely home after completion of renovation works.


'Gruttin’ is situated approximately three miles north of the village of Voe in a secluded setting at the head of Dales Voe, a convenient location for easy access to Brae (approx. 6 miles) and Sullom Voe (approx. 10 miles) yet still within easy commuting distance of Lerwick (22 miles).

Amenities in Voe include a local shop which also sells fuel, a village hall plus a marina at Lower Voe. Further facilities are however available at Brae, the main population centre for the North Mainland area where there is a High School, swimming pool / leisure centre, Co-op mini-supermarket & health centre.
