What should I say, it was really a lovely stay, s wonderful quiet, remote retreat on Muckle Roe with a wonderful view over the bay (firth). The cottage, an award winning renovation of an old chapel, is spacious and very well equipped, especially the kitchen was impressive. We loved to sit at the fire place in the evening after extensive walks enjoying weather and landscapes of the beautiful Shetland Islands.
My husband and I spent three relaxing days at the Chapel in Jan/Feb and wished we could have stayed a month. Bogi has restored and renovated this lovely property to very high standards and has provided all the comforts you could want. The location is great for touring around the Shetlands yet removed and remote enough for plenty of peace and quiet. (There are shops and grocers close by). The views over the water and surrounding crofts are beautiful. A+
Muckle Roe Chapel is quite possibly the best holiday cottage in the whole of Shetland. Excellent facilities and amenities are available a short drive away at Brae. Easy driving to Lerwick or for ferries to the north islands makes Muckle Roe the perfect location to get the best out of your stay. Views from the Chapel are unrivalled and, with all the comforts of home at your disposal, you could hardly choose better for a relaxing and restoring holiday. The attention to detail is second to none: just when you think it can’t get any better and you’re struggling to get into your walking boots, you spot the wall-mounted shoe horn, right beside you. How cool is that? There is no doubt that respect and admiration must go to the owners, for their dedication and determination in restoring this spectacularly unique place.
We stayed a week in this wonderful cottage. Everything was perfect, the view is marvellous, you can stay hours in the rocking chair just watching the colours changing. The cottage is really high level and fully equiped. 3 comfortable bedrooms, one with ensuite bathroom (shower) and a Bathroom with bath. Very large fully equiped kitchen, nice sofa's, great outdoor terrace and table, and the mezzanine is a great place for the kids to chill!
The owner is very kind and available, all our questions had fast answers before and during our stay. Prices asked for a week are really fair for such a quality, so excellent value for money !!!
Very easy access with 30 min driving form Lerwick (shops & Tesco store) and 5 min from Brae where there's a Co-op Supermarket and some restaurants. Muckle Roe is ideally situated to visit the whole archipel: the South Sumburgh or the North Unst can be reached in no time.
We had the most beautiful holidays of our lives and we definitely recommend the Muckle Roe Chapel to anyone.
We stayed 2 weeks at Muckle Roe Chapel. Just genius! Very good contact with owner Bogi, who has very professional instructions to the house ready. Great service. Thank you. Very nice converted chapel, very good location. Only a few minutes to Brae with supermarket and 2 restaurants. Beautiful view. Pure relaxation. Just to be recommended! Well located for excursions in all directions ,. Unfortunately, the weather was not great, so we enjoyed the chapel. Thanks Bogi for your helps.
Muckle Roe is perfect for getting to many places on Shetland and the chapel is one of the best holiday rentals I've ever had. The kitchen was particularly well appointed and care had obviously been taken in the design of the accommodation. On top of that we had wonderful weather!
It's difficult not to run out of superlatives when reviewing "The Chapel" on Muckle Row and all I can do is add my thanks to Bogi for providing such wonderful accommodation and my wife for booking it for my big "0" birthday.
