John was a very good host. Helpful yet unobtrusive. Generous pantry staples and plenty of toiletries offered. The location was perfect fo exploring the northern part of Shetland Islands. The house was set up well to maintain guest and owner's privacy. Thank you John.

Located 5 minutes drive from Toft ferry terminal. Peaceful location close to otter spotting area. John is very helpful and willing to share his knowledge of the islands, local history and where to visit. 'Starter' groceries were most welcome. Would visit again.
