Shetland is a small community, but it’s diverse, open and welcoming. The environment is one of the rarest and richest in Europe and there’s an amazingly vibrant social, artistic and music scene.


Shetland is on longitude 01ºW of Greenwich and straddles latitude 60ºN, 598 miles (962km) north of London and just 400 miles (643km) south of the Arctic Circle. This is as far north as St Petersburg, Russia, or Anchorage, Alaska.


Shetland is home to 22,000 people, renowned for their friendliness and hospitality and also has a first-class education system.


A vibrant and safe community, dramatic and unspoilt scenery, and an abundance of wildlife makes Shetland a highly desirable place to live.

Thanks again for your brilliant service with both my property sales over the past years. Your experience in Shetland is much noted with local people.

Selling my house whilst living in Edinburgh was a daunting prospect but I should not have worried. The communications between both parties was easy and the sale of my property went through without any hitches.

Please do not select all locations - different areas in Shetland have quite different characteristics. For example, it would be unlikely that a property in Lerwick will be of interest to someone considering a croft house in Yell or Unst.

Please note any additional requirements, queries or comments in the box provided.
