Wonderful apartment. Only one caveat, the second "bathroom" has a sink and shower, but no toilet. Catrina was great and made our arrival and departure easy. Shetland was great.

Management response:

Thank you Michael for you kind words. The second toilet was on our plans, but due to difficulties with the plumbing, we were unable to install one much to our disappointment. Lovely to meet you all and enjoy your travels 😊

We have recently returned from a trip to Shetland and Orkney. We stayed at the Fort Charlotte self catering apartment for 3 nights. It really is a very nice apartment, it is situated right next to Fort Charlotte, in fact the only way it could be closer is if it was inside! It is very handy for the town centre, and every amenity, all the shops are literally round the corner and almost all restaurants...

Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to leave you lovely review. Delighted you enjoyed your stay, Carina 😊

Our family of 5 adults visited Shetland last month and greatly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Fort Charlotte - we didn't want to leave! The handy location is in the middle of town, the apartment was clean and warm (apartment photos are accurate), and everything you might need (new linens, toiletries, cooking utensils and condiments, welcome basket, etc) was thoughtfully provided. Carina was a wonderful host and a huge help throughout our stay. Yes...

Management response:

Thank you Natalie for taking the time to leave a review. You were the perfect guests, I don't think you could have packed much more into your stay in Shetland, so well done. Hope you have arrived home safely and would love to have your lovely family to stay again 😄
