Property Location

Grindahoul is situated off the main road through Brae in the centre of the village next to the Health Centre. Turn into the estate and follow the road around to the right passing a large detached house on the corner. Continue right up and right around the houses on the left taking the first turning on the left immediately behind these houses onto a narrow road. Drive into the public parking area; No. 14 is the left hand house of the pair or semi-detached houses on the left.

Note a gate at the bottom of No.14’s back garden provides pedestrian access from the lower part of the Grindahoul road providing a handy shortcut.

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.
