This deceptively spacious cottage offers up an opportunity for a 'first time buy' or for someone wishing to downsize with the property being partially fitted with disabled rails and a 'walk-in' shower.

Situated just to the south of the Loch of Spiggie, Lerwick, approximately 22 miles, is within easy commuting distance as is the airport at Sumburgh (approx. 5 miles).

In addition to three bedrooms (one single and two double), the property also comprises a separate kitchen, dining room, sittingroom, bathroom, conservatory and hall.

Double glazing throughout and oil fired central heating.

The house which is on the flat and has a large level garden, would benefit from some upgrading which is reflected in the price.

General Information

Property Location

To find the house, take the turning west to Quendale from the main Lerwick – Sumburgh road by Mainland’s Store at Dunrossness. Follow the road for about a mile and turn right to Spiggie. Continue for a further mile to a group of three cottages on the left hand side of the road. ‘The Meadows’ is the third one in on the left.

To see the location of the property in an overall Shetland context, adjust the zoom by clicking the + or - buttons. Use the 'Map', 'Satellite' & 'Hybrid' buttons to switch between an ordnance survey style road map, a satellite aerial photograph or a combination (hybrid) of the two. Please note that the date of the satellite image is unknown and may not show new buildings.

(Please be aware the Google Street View was taken on the date shown. The building and surroundings may have changed since then. We always recommend you view the property personally.)

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.

Location Desired

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.
