Exploring Brae & Beyond


As mentioned, our location in Brae gives you an excellent opportunity to take in Shetland differently than staying anywhere else. North of our guesthouse in Brae, there is a number of must-sees. Through Northmavine you have Mavis Grind - where you have stunning sites to take in from Hams of Roe in Muckle Roe to Fethaland in North Roe. It does not stop there though, in recent years Uyea (in the very north of North Roe) has become a hugely popular spot for people to visit although you must bear in mind it is a long walk and is not the most accessible of beaches so a good day is a must. As you enter Northmavine, you will have the narrowest of isthmus that joins the Northmavine peninsula to the rest of the island in the Shetland IslandsScotland. It is only 100 feat wide at its narrowest point, meaning with the wind on your back you may just be able to through a stone from the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.

Away from Shetland's mainland, we are famous for our vast number of islands which are also home to some beautiful sites and great tight-knit communities. Our guesthouse in the north of Shetland is within a short distance of ferry terminals for our northern isles of Yell, Unst and Whalsay. Not to forget Fetlar, known as the garden of Shetland sporting a huge number of wild flower and the home of a great number of important breeding species including Arctic Skuas and Eurasian Whimbrels.
