Cottage
Vanlop Cottage is a recently renovated property in the middle of a family-owned croft in the South Mainland of the Shetland Islands. A cosy ambience and stunning sea views make this an ideal base for exploring Shetland's dramatic scenery, fascinating history, and many visitor experiences. Our photo gallery just begins to give a flavour of why this is a truly special location for a relaxing escape. We feel privileged to live in one of Shetland's National Scenic Areas, and we love sharing it with our guests. Vanlop Cottage is an extended, traditional, semi-detached crofter's home situated at the very end of a public single-track road. It has been thoughtfully set up for self-catering, family accommodation.
