A traditional Shetland Crofter's cottage in Baliasta, Unst, Shetland. Close by to the Loch of Cliff, near to the local shops and leisure centre. We absolutely love our little spot and enjoy opening it up to our many well-travelled guests.

The cottage is very cosy, has a wood burning stove, and a good-sized garden. Please be aware though, that it is a very old house and as such has some rustic quirks. While we are happy to accommodate children please be aware all beds are doubles.

El espacio
The perfect place for a quiet get away, Scraefield is located at the end of a quiet lane in the dip of a small valley in Baliasta, near to Baltasound's shops and amenities.

There are two small double rooms upstairs, with a bathroom (with bathtub but please note there is NO SHOWER), and a cosy living room with a pull out sofa-bed, and a wood burner, and fully equipped kitchen downstairs.

The living room includes a television with freeview and a DVD player, as well as a traditional wood-burning stove which will keep you very toasty and warm in the evenings. Please Note: The TV aerial can sometimes get blown in the wind affecting the signal. If this happens during your stay, please just get in touch, and I will have someone come and fix it.

The house also has wifi. You will find the code on the router on the windowsill.

PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING: The house is very old and has its imperfections. As mentioned there is no shower, and there is an ongoing schedule of maintenance on the house, but with all things Shetland, this is slow going. On occasion, birds can fly down the chimney and get stuck, causing a blockage, and you may have to remove them. The boiler is also small, so you shouldn't run the bath too long as the water will go cold. The house is not suitable for anyone seeking a luxurious get away, but is perfect for those who don't mind a few idiosyncrasies and are up for an adventure!

The local area is incredibly peaceful and quiet. The cottage sits next to the remains of the Baliasta Kirk ruins, which are worth exploring. A short walk away is the leisure centre which has a pool, gym and other sports facilities. Beyond the leisure centre you will find the very sweet St. John's Church, and Ethel's shop where you will find all the supplies you need for your stay, as well as the UK's most northerly post office.

The island has many beautiful beaches which are perfect for idyllic walks: Norwick, Sandwick, Skaw, Westing, Uyeasound. At the Southern end of the island you will find Muness Castle, offering a glimpse into Shetland history. The island is also littered with Viking longhouse remains and other archeological delights. In Haroldswick you will find the recently completed replica Viking Longhouse and Viking ship, as well as Victoria's teashop, The Unst Heritage Centre and the Boat Haven (both open May-September).

There are plenty of places to explore on the island, and in the evenings you can grab a meal or a few pints at the bar at Saxavord, or check out one of the dances going on at the Haroldswick, Baltasound or Uyeasound halls.

Unst is a magical place to stay, a world of it's own. You will have a beautiful, peaceful stay whether you're up for puffin spotting at Hermaness nature reserve, or just keen to curl up by the fire with a book, and we would love to have you stay at our family run home.

I live in Brighton, UK with my boyfriend Graham and our dog Margot. I work for a charity and when not at work or University where I am studying for my Masters, I love to take long walks with the dog, country pubs, travelling, taking photos, knitting and doing pottery. My Air BnB cottage is a family house, which I share with my sister having inherited it from our mother. We love spending time at the house, walking on the local beaches and taking some time out. We would love to share the house with you!
