At the rear of the main space is a further retail / storage area with office and store to the side, and further store leading through to a staff area with kitchenette & toilet.

The property is situated across the road from the pier and beach in the centre of the village of Mid Yell on Yell, the larger of Shetland’s North Isles, the village being Yell’s main population centre and the location for its main amenities including the Junior High School, leisure centre & swimming pool, medical & care centres.
Yell is approximately 19 miles long by 7.5 miles wide and having a population of around 1,000, and is connected to Mainland Shetland by a regular ro-ro ferry service which runs throughout the day from Ulsta at the south end of the island, about 10 miles from the property. A similar service runs from Gutcher to the north to the neighbouring island of Unst.
Despite the remote ‘get-away-from-it-all’ location, the mainland is still easily accessible with a daily overnight ferry service linking Shetland with Orkney & Aberdeen, and regular flights by Loganair & Flybe from Sumburgh Airport at the very southern tip of Shetland to Aberdeen, Glasgow & Edinburgh.
