We spent four days at Westayre. While the B&B is a fair distance out - it is easy to locate and we found it easy to get to anywhere in Shetland from this location. The roads on the islands are well maintained.
Elsie is very sweet and her breakfasts are wonderful. As others have mentioned the views from the B&B are amazing. We were overwhelmed by the peacefulness of the area.
Make sure you rent a vehicle or have one on your own. We found Bolt rental cars to be very efficient. We didn't book ferry service to Yell or Unst and were able to get on right away; however, if this would have been high season it probably would have been needed.
Frankie's Fish and Chips in Brae is a good place to eat at a good cost. The Co-op sells snacks and sandwiches if you want to pick something up for your day travels.
Eshaness cliffs are worth a trip out to see and can be done in half a day. The croft house is an amazing reproduction. Munness castle was interesting as was Jarlshoff and seeing the puffins at Sumburgh Head.
We would highly recommend Westayre as a place to locate oneself while in Shetland.
