Friendly accommodation in Shetland
Windward, Scalloway , Shetland Islands, Scotland (Closed)
Unfortunately this accommodation is now closed due to ill health. Sorry.
A friendly welcome is definitely assured at our family run bed and breakfast in Scalloway the Ancient Capital of Shetland
Situated next to the Atlantic Ocean ....Windward is a warm and comfortable family home in a quiet location on the outskirts of the village of Scalloway with lovely views of the surrounding islands that lie to the South and West. We are situated about 1/2 a mile from the centre of the village. Local shops, swimming pool, gym, museum, restaurants and pubs are within walking distance and there is a bus stop a couple of minutes walk from the house.
Scalloway is located in the centre of the Shetland mainland and is an ideal base for exploring North, South, East or West.
Due to its location, you get the best of both worlds when staying at Windward. You still have the peace and quiet of living in the outskirts of a village but are only 6 miles, a 10-15 minute bus or car journey away from Lerwick, Shetland's main town where you will find a wider choice of restaurants, craft shops, museums, bars, parks and much more.
There are 3 tastefully decorated clean and warm bedrooms available all year round. All bedrooms have tea and coffee making facilities.
Breakfast is served between 7.30am and 9.00am daily in our Conservatory which has panoramic views of nearby islands. Early or late breakfast available on request. Traditional cooked breakfast, vegetarian and healthy options available.
There is car parking space outside the house and a garden where there is seating with nice views of the neighbouring islands.
Guests are welcome to use the family living room and conservatory. You may simply wish to look at the lovely view, sit and relax, do some reading, crafts or to socialise... the choice is yours! We have a selection of books about Shetland, Fishing, Wildlife, Travel and many other interesting topics for you to use during your stay.
Packed lunches are available on request when prior notice is given.
We have a no smoking policy however we are happy to supply an ashtray to enable you to smoke outside and enjoy the garden views.
Free WIFI available on request.
Whether on business or vacation you'll be treated like a friend in a home away from home.
