Externally, the large garden area which includes several outbuildings by the house, offers potential for a sizeable vegetable garden and a polytunnel subject to any necessary requirements.

Although situated on one of Shetland’s outer isles, mainland Shetland is easily accessible thanks to a regular, subsidised, 20 minute ferry crossing from the ferry terminal at Ulsta about 12 miles from the house, which runs to Toft about 5 minutes from Sullom Voe oil terminal and the gas plant.

The Croft

The owner-occupied registered croft ‘The Park’ which is situated to the north-east of ‘Braeview’, is estimated to extend to around 7.3 acres (3 hectares) or thereby as shown on the plan. There are no buildings on the croft apart from the remains of a derelict croft house. The north-east boundary is unfenced. The croft is being sold subject to any existing access rights.

The croft is registered with the Crofting Commission. Prospective purchasers requiring further information on crofting should contact the Crofters Commission directly at Great Glen House, Leachkin Road, Inverness, IV3 8NW or visit their website at

Note there is a small field immediately between the immediate garden area of ‘Braeview’ and ‘The Park’ croft which does not form part of the subjects of sale.



As noted the property sits in a large site estimated to extend to around ½ acre or thereby, which is generally enclosed by a wall or fencing.

The front garden has established lawns on either side of a path leading to a short shallow flight of steps to the terrace in front of the house which has a stone balustrade and includes paved seating areas on either side of the porch.

The path continues around the east side of the house to a large back garden area and several outbuildings: 3 greenhouses, one (approx. 5.3m x 2.5m (17’5” x 8’ 3”)), second 4.83m x 3.05m (15’10” x 10’), both of which have external water supply and power sockets nearby, and the third 6.47m x 3.80m (21’3” x 12’6”) with power and water; a workshop (overall approx. 8.9m x 3m (29’3” x 9’10”)), again with power (the chest freezer therein is included); and a small boiler house.
