The Shetland Isles region
Shetland is located when Scotland meets Scandinavia and the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean.
Most famous for its ponies, distinctive “Fair Isle” knitting patterns and Viking links. Visit Shetland at any time of year and you'll be enchanted by the rugged beauty of the landscape, its dramatic changing colours and textures will take your breath away.
The bustling archipelago of 22,500 people boasts abundant wildlife, a spectacular coastline and dozens of major archaeological sites. Whether arriving for the first time of returning, you can be sure of a great welcome.
Shetland lies 600 miles (960km) north of London. More than 100 islands, just 15 of them inhabited, span the 100 miles (145km) between Fair isle and Out Stack, the northernmost point in Britain.
Because the Shetland Island's are so far north, from mid-May to mid-July, the “simmer dim” (summer twilight) when the sun only dips below the horizon for a few hours. In fine weather this can brings the islands almost 19 hours of sunshine a day. In the winter and spring months Shetland is an ideal place to view the magnificant Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
Brekka Lodge is located just 10 minutes from Lerwick, the capital of Shetland. Based between the hamlets of Fladdabister and Ocraquoy, Brekka Lodge has stunning unspoilt sea views and all the peace and quiet you require. An ideal central base for exploring the whole of Shetland.
The peaceful location of the property ensures you the freedom and space to ensure an wonderful holiday. Ideal for couples, singles, families, young or old.
For those with young children we provide a highchair, travel cot, stairgate and a toy box free of charge. Brekka Lodge is sited away from the road to ensure safety and there is a large lawn for picnicing, playing football, kite flying or sun batheing should the weather permit.
Brekka Lodge visitors boast about the nature on the doorstep, with the beaches, coastline and loch being firm favourites. The nearest beach is only a 2 minute walk from the Lodge and the next one is only 4 minutes away! Watch gannets diving for fish from the lounge window! You may even be lucky enough to spot the local shy otter who has been seen two feet from the property and often on the shoreline below the house.
Should the weather be poor there are games, free wifi, dvds and books provided for your enjoyment. However, Shetland also has much to offer with a network of leisure centres, heritage centres and the recently opened award winning museum in Lerwick, to name a few things to do on a wet day. Check out the comprehensive information pack and Shetland books in the accommodation for other suggestions.
Activities on the doorstep include bird watching, loch and sea fishing and peaceful coastal and hill walks. Brekka Lodge is on the Fladdabister circular walk route. Within 10 minutes on foot you will find amazing:
- plants and flowers;
- sea mammals;
- geological delights;
- shingle beaches;
- rock pools;
- lime kilns;
- ruins; and much, much more
....... an explorer's paradise!
