The location puts the property within walking distance of the main amenities in the town including shops / banks etc. on Commercial Street, the small boat harbour, and also the business park, museum & music / cinema venue at North Ness. Lerwick's bowling green and flower park are just across the road from the property.

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.
