Eastview is a refurbished traditional crofter / fisherman's cottage in the hamlet of Papil, on Burra Isle in Shetland. The cottage has four bedrooms, a double, a twin and two singles, sleeping up to 6.

The cottage was built by my Grandfathers, Grandfather and has been a family home since then. Traditional Shetland houses were built for solidity and substance, they were blended with their landscape and built to shrug off the storms or a North Atlantic winter. Eastview is entirely in that tradition and it's moderrnisation, central heating, double glazing, fitted kitchen etc, have not detracted from its origins.

For example the ceiling in the sitting room is about 11 foot from the floor, that allowed Herring Nets to be strung high for winter mending and allowed "Reestit Mutton" and drying clothes to be hoisted above hear level. Another example of "recycling" is the skirtiings and facings which were hand sawn and planed during a winter which dumped Canadian reiver logs on the shetland beaches but kept the fishing boats ashore.

Eastview is situated in a quiet seaside location with a fine view. There are many local walks to sandy beaches, rugged coastline and stunning sea cliffs.

Eastview is on a working croft and there may be opportunities to watch, or even help, in lambing, peat cutting and curing, sheep shearing or hay making depending on the season.

"Glorious Land of the Simmer Dim"

Mid June on Shetland is fantastic, never really gets dark. Eastview was a perfect location to explore the islands and to enjoy the peace and beauty of the fantastic Burra Isle. The cottage is an authe… More
