We had a very enjoyable two night stay at Westayre B&B and only wished we had spent more time. The B&B is the last home off a single track road, approximately 4 miles from Brae, and is part of a working farm with sheep and ducks, and a very friendly cat. Our bedroom window overlooked sheep and green rolling hills, as in the picture attached. The bedroom was comfortable, with a great shower, and wonderful hospitality. The shades in the room were also such that they kept most of the light out at night - something to think about in June, when there may be only 2 hours of dusk before it starts getting light again! For breakfast, you can even request fresh duck eggs, from their ducks. They also have some local hand knit Shetland hats and gloves for sale, if you missed the shops in Lerwick on the way up. There is a nearby beach you can walk to, that is at most a half mile away, which is very picturesque and empty. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to explore the hiking further than the beach, but there are many longer walks just beyond the beach. And my 13 yr old son's favorite part about Westayre, is that they had wi-fi - and added treat to our B&B stay.
The B&B is also in a great location if you decide to take a day trip north to Unst, as it is maybe a half hour from the first ferry over to Yell. Esha Ness is also about a 30-45 min drive from Westayre, although sadly we didn't get a chance to see Esha Ness during this trip. It is definately on our list of things to do for our next trip! Additionally, we had some wonderful meals at the Busta hotel, which came highly recommended by our B&B. Would love to help answer any questions if you are considering a stay at Westayre. Just loved our stay, and hope to return in a few years and spend more time there.
