The Scotland 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).

“A wonderful stay...in beautiful surroundings....”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2016

Anne, our 4 Children (aged 3 to 14) and I stayed from 26th March for 7 days, we only wish it could have been longer. First the accommodation, well what can we say other than a perfectly appointed property...immaculate and tastefully furnished. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. Beautiful views across to the sea and a very safe space for young children. Plenty of room for 6 people to chill out after a day of walking or sight seeing. The Kitchen is really well equipped and I'm someone who is very picky over kitchen kit, this place has all you need to make your hearty supper after a busy day. Brekka, is one of the best appointed properties that we have stayed in in the last 15 years or so. Lovely bedrooms, a very modern and well equipped bathroom (bath and shower). The property is spotless. Various DVDs to watch if you have the time, but who needs DVDs when you can look out of the window at wildlife and the sea...We only usually book 5 star accommodation and this place lived up to that. A lot of effort has been made to make Brekka a lovely "home from home". The owners, Sheila and George who live next door are the perfect hosts.They take great pride, (rightly so) in their accommodation and have put a really helpful pack together to help you get the most from your stay. Lots of books also on Shetland to peruse. A welcome pack to kick off your breakfast. Sheila popped in with some delicious jam shortbread in the week, it was consumed by our "gannets" within minutes! ...We had no issues or problems at all in our stay, but I'm sure if anything went wrong in the property Sheila and George would sort it all out with no fuss. They are the perfect hosts and are 100% committed to make sure you have a lovely stay at their property. 10/10. Shetland...it was our first visit...it will not be our last. We fell in love with the place. Really friendly people. The scenery is just awesome. Wildlife around every corner. We saw Killer Whales in Unst and seals popped up all over, much to all of our enjoyment. The property is well placed to see all of the South mainland really easily and there much to see. If you love Archeology, Jarlshof is a must see. St Ninians Isleis just beautiful. We went all the way to Muckle Flugga on Unst, taking in 2 Islands and 2 Ferries and we did it in 2 hours...well worth the trip...the views on Unst are mind-blowing. The ferries run like clockwork. The scenery is stunning...Shetland is just a wonderful place. I've been lucky to travel to many continents and countries across the globe, Shetland is out on its own....nowhere I've seen in the East, Middle East and West can give you so much variety in matter of a few miles. The people we met where very friendly and helpful....smiles and waves are the norm here. What a refreshing change! So Brekka....a perfect rental property in a beautiful location, ran by 2 lovely and dedicated people....If you plan on going to Shetland (and we would strongly recommend a visit), then I would be surprised if you would find anything that tops Brekka for a place to stay. Great location, accommodation and views...it has it all. When we return to Shetland next year, we will stay at Brekka for sure.

Thank you for your generous and comprehensive review. We are both very touched and humbled by your kind words. We love what we do and enjoy meeting lots of new people. It was a delight to meet you and your family. A warm welcome await in the future should you make that return visit.

“Comfortable and convenient”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

We stayed at Brekka Lodge because we wanted to combine visiting family members in the South Mainland (mainly) and Unst with being in range of some of Shetland's visitor attractions. We found the accommodation totally to our satisfaction and the location was just right. It's always a blessing when you come to Shetland to be in sight of the sea and Brekka gives you that in spades. The owners were flexible to our travel needs (we had to take up the accommodation at non-standard times) and this made our stay more memorable. Thank you!

Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure having you to stay at Brekka Lodge. We hope you can return in the future.

“An excellent place to stay”

Reviewed 6 May 2015

The property was in excellent condition, modern through out. Shelia and George we the best hosts one could wish for,always on hand to iron out any problems. Apart from the weather, which could have been better,the Shetland Islands lived up to expectations. We were sad when it was time to take our leave of this wonderful place. How did the lambing go George?

We loved having you stay Brekka Lodge, such a genuine and lovely couple. The lambing is going exceptionally well, despite the evening rainfall. Mostly twins and 6 sets of triplets.

“We love Brekka Lodge!”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2015

The Brekka Lodge is so wonderful in every way. Firstly, Sheila is extremely kind and helped us very much from the day we arrived. Secondly, it is a beautiful and immaculate lodge, equipped with everything one may need. It felt like our own home, even nicer :-) We enjoyed our stay so much and will definitely come back. The surrounding is so beautiful, giving lovely views from the large windows in the living room. We walked around each afternoon, met two seals at the beach by the lodge, and enjoyed various beautiful landscapes. Last but not least, we very much appreciated the welcome package (the chocolate cakes are to die for).

Thank you for your very kind review. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome such a lovely couple to Brekka Lodge. We very much hope we get to meet you again in the future. Kind regards to you both.

“Excellent accomodation”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2014

Brekka was immaculate and without any doubt the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. It was clean, homely and well equipped. We had a lovely week there.

Thank you for your kind review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Brekka Lodge, it was a pleasure having you.

“Excellent accommodation, well equipped and very relaxing stay.”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2014

We had a really lovely week at Brekka Lodge. The house itself was very comfortable, warm and well equipped. Spotted a pod of Minkie whales heading south down along the coast from the living room! (Well, ok … with binoculars!) Would recommend Brekka to anyone looking for self-catering in Shetland.

Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure having you to stay and really pleased that you saw the Minkie whales.

“Immaculate, well situated and superbly furnished/fitted”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2014

Brekka lodge has everything you would find at home, and more. The kitchen was extremely well kitted out, everywhere was impressively clean and tidy, and the sight of oyster-catchers feeding on the lawn outside the window (plus you own 'personal' beach) made the location perfect for us.

Thank you for your review and we were pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Brekka Lodge.

“Beautifuuly fitted and maintained in a peaceful setting”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2014

We heartily recommend Brekka Lodge. We have very high standards of cleanliness and organisation in rented properties, and being light sleepers we cannot tolerate noise and traffic, so this was ideal for us.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Brekka Lodge.
