HIGHLANDS and Islands Enterprise has put one of its four office units at the Sellafirth business park, on the island of Yell, on the market.
The development agency hopes to attract offers above £27,500 for the 102 square metre modern office building.
Alternatively, HIE is looking for a five year lease at £3,850 plus VAT.
The business park was opened in 2005 following a £500,000 investment by HIE to stimulate business activity in a very rural part of Shetland.
Currently, two units are leased to Global Yell, while a third one was sold to Shetland Gallery owners Shona and Alan Skinner a few years ago.
The fourth unit had been empty for some time, according to HIE.
A spokesman said: “It is not necessarily in anybody’s to keep this in public ownership forever. Sometimes we hold on to it but generally we will sell on at some stage.”
