Property Location

To reach the property take the main A970 Lerwick – Scalloway road and turn left to Trondra at East Voe on the approach to Scalloway. Turn first left into Blydoit, pass the loop for the bus service on the right, and take the next right. Follow the road in and around the left and continue to the end of the road where you will see ahead of you three pairs of two storey semi-detached houses with a grassed area in front. No. 29 is the left hand house of the right hand pair.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.

Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.
