To reach the property take the turning to ‘Gott Farm’, ‘Strand’ & ‘Laxfirth’ from the main north road at Veensgarth. The Strand houses are situated on the right hand side of the road about ½ a mile from the junction, just after the 30mph sign and before the school. Turn into the development and turn left. No. 3 is the second house in on the left.

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.

Please do not select all locations - different areas in Shetland have quite different characteristics. For example, it would be unlikely that a property in Lerwick will be of interest to someone considering a croft house in Yell or Unst.
