The Glen Orchy is a converted Edwardian Convent located two minutes walk from Lerwick city centre. We are situated in a quiet neighbourhood with views which overlook the town and both Lerwick and Breiwick Bays, ...More across the street from us is a golf course along the coast which also boasts great walking routes. We are family owned and operated with a few specially selected staff. We do our very best to make our guests feel welcomed and valued, we want everyone to have a pleasant stay and leave with good memories. We try to make the extra effort for our guests because we know they have come great distances to stay with us. Less
