Self Catering Accommodation in Shetland 

A holiday in Shetland is a truly special experience. The beautiful scenery, an unrivalled coastline and some of the most impressive and accessible wildlife you are ever likely to encounter can only be surpassed by viewing it all from your very own lighthouse.

In addition to the wonderfully rich cultural heritage of the islands and the friendliest ‘natives’ you are ever likely to meet, Shetland’s pristine beaches, countryside and stunning clear seas are home to a wealth of seabirds, mammals and other wildlife.

Self Catering Accommodation

Shetland Lighthouse Holidays offer visitors to Shetland the rare opportunity to stay in one of three historical and spectacularly situated lighthouses. From the very tip of Shetland's southernmost point in Sumburgh, to the dramatic North West cliffs of Eshaness and the exposed outcrop of Bressay; each location offers a unique and unforgettable holiday destination.

The now automated lights remain under the control and care of the Northern Lighthouse Board. The lighthouse keeper’s cottages are owned by Shetland Amenity Trust which aims to protect and preserve Shetland’s wonderfully individual cultural heritage. Plan your self catering holiday in one of Shetlands most historical buildings. Check availability and book online
