Stayed 5 days in late August.
We flew into Sumburgh from Edinburgh after travelling up by car from Liverpool. I then picked up a hire car from Bolts Car Rental (nice clean car) and then travelled the 30 miles (approx) to Lerwick.
The owner (Jean) met us at the apartments at an agreed time. She showed us around the apartment and explained to us how everything worked, including the free wireless broadband.
The view from the Kitchen is very nice over to a bay, but don't be put off by a single story messy looking workshop at the back of the property. The guys who work there are friendly and they go home around 6pm....
Lerwick and the Shetland Islands are a true delight. The weather shone for us which is very helpful when you have 10 year old twin girls to entertain. If you have kids then take them to the Clikinmin leisure centre (10 mins walk from the apartment) as the Swimming Pool is brilliant, 2 x slides, plus diving/jumping boards!
We really enjoyed the holiday. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer!
