“As good the second time as last year”

We visited Coo Grind last year and we came back again for our annual relaxing week in Shetland. What more can I say!? Carol is a wonderful, welcoming hostess who has created a gem of a property and is now reaping the rewards of her vision with an increasingly busy booking schedule. You only have to look through the visitor book to see the joy that Coo Grind has already given to guests from around the world. From the welcoming Shetland Fudge and copy of the Shetland Times to sad goodbyes after another amazing week, this is a fantastic apartment in a relaxing, quiet location.

The accommodation at Coo-grind was wonderful and without doubt the best we have ever stayed at. Carol and Garry were lovely and could not do enough for us. I can not recommend them highly enough other than to say that we will be returning.

“Wonderful Shetland accomodation”

Coo-Grind was a great find and we had a wonderful week there. From the warm welcome, complete with fudge and a local newspaper, to our sad departure, Carole and Gary made us exceptionally welcome in their beautifully appointed self-catering apartment. Everything was perfect and we'd definitely book again. What more can we say!

Apologies for how late our review is. My partner and I had a lovely stay at Coogrind with our dog, Max. The location is beautiful and the beach is so nearby. Meal Beach is definitely worth a visit. The apartment is attached to the owner's house but you really do feel like you have your own wee space and you're not in anyone's way. Carole was a great host, despite our stay being over Easter weekend and her son's birthday. The apartment is lovely and modern with a very comfortable bed, great shower and central heating that works very quickly. When we return to Shetland we would love to return to Coogrind. We had such a great stay and wish it had been a little longer. Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Coogrind. It was a very well appointed unit in as new condition with everything you could possibly need and had wonderful views over the wild Shetland coastline. The host was very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend Coogrind to anyone visiting Shetland.
