The Lodge


A lovely seaside house sleeping up to six people with fabulous views on Fetlar, Shetland, one of Scotland’s most beautiful islands.

The Lodge is a very pretty and comfortable house located on the island of Fetlar, part of the Shetland Islands. Fetlar is one of the prettiest islands in Shetland and is well known for its birdlife and spectacular coastline. The Lodge is part of the historic Leagarth Estate located within its own private garden. It benefits from stunning views over the bay and the headland of Lambhoga which can be seen from all the major rooms. The house is located in the centre of the island next to the pier and beach and within walking distance of the island shop and museum ( where you can read the history of the Leagarth Estate). 

The Lodge was built in approximately 1905 by Sir Watson Cheyne ( a pioneering surgeon) but has recently undergone extensive renovation which has sensitively updated the house whilst retaining original features. It has a new modern kitchen, a sunny sitting room with a large bay window and three good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom also has a large bay window and has a luxurious super kingsize bed which can be converted into twin beds. The second bedroom, also with views over the bay, has twin beds while the third bedroom looks over the hill and contains a double bed. The bathroom has a bath with a shower. There is a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer and unlimited wifi. 

Fetlar is a nature lover’s and rambler’s paradise. There are numerous varieties of seabirds, divers and waders but Fetlar is particularly famous for the red knocked phalarope, one of the few places in the British Isles where this wader can be found. 

Seals and otters can be found along the coastline along with occasional whales, orcas and dolphins. For walkers there are endless beautiful walks along the stunning coastline. 

There are superb sandy beaches which you normally have to yourself.
