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.

We have availed ourselves of services provided by Harper Macleod of Lerwick, both in buying and selling residential property. Our needs on both these occasions were fully met and the service provided by them made our task in these circumstances, seemingly without effort.

Prior to this we had also received very helpful general advice pertaining to Shetland real estate from them. This was a tremendous benefit to us at the time.

If you are seeking cost effective, excellent real estate marketing and legal services, we would not hesitate in recommending Harper Macleod of Lerwick.
