The Shetland Islands region

The Shetland Islands are Scotland's most northerly Islands, steeped in ancient history with striking landscapes

and rich wildlife and flora.

The Islands are truly unspoilt and its dramatic coastline offers a contrast of scenery from sandy beaches to rugged cliffs and caves.

Papa Stour

The island of Papa Stour was designated a site of scientific interest in 1975 and the sea around it is a marine conservation area. First populated in 3000BC it has traces of prehistoric man with neolithic dwellings, chambered cairns and bronze age burnt mounds and is therefore of great interest to archaeologists. Middle iron age is represented by Muckle and Little Heogan which can be found very close to East Biggins itself.

Papa Stour has 18 species of breeding sea birds including Fulmars,Shags, Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins and many more. The Island also has many seals and otters and there are frequent sightings of harbour porpoises and killer whales.

Papa Stour has 21 miles of rugged coastline with beaches,caves and cliffs, and the house is surrounded by fields with sheep and Shetland ponies.

"A fabulous island waiting to be explored."

Arriving on the small island ferry from the mainland (possibly with a crofter bringing in supplies) gives you a sense of immediate isolation here. There's plenty to do however: exploring the 38km coastline of beaches, inlets, cliffs, stacks and caves; watching the many species of birds and inquisitive seals from close up; meandering through the remains of past invaders and settlers and admiring the modern crofting ways of life. Coming back to the house for a late afternoon drink (remember to bring your own) knowing you'll be cosy with everything at hand was great. When the weather turns (and it will do when you're there) the TV can be switched on or better still look out of the living room window and watch the boat traffic scuttling through the Sound of Papa trying to beat the approaching storm in search of safer havens. We'd recommend the property - it was easy to book, you'll be greeted by a crofter with 40 years time spent on Papa and if you get the sun will enjoy the remoteness of sitting outside with views you'll miss when you've got the small ferry back again.

"Lovely, comfortable cottage"

Really lovely, comfortable cottage with everything you need. Stunning views and an attractive island. Brilliant for walks with a super beach and some interesting archaeology. Our dogs loved it too with their own enclosed and safe garden to rampage around in. We had a marvellous time and will most certainly be going back.
