To reach the house turn up the hill into Gremista Brae at the Gremista roundabout at the north end of Lerwick. At the top of the hill follow the road around to the right into Ladies Drive passing the junction for the Old North Road on the left. Turn next left shortly after the first wooden houses on the right (Gremmasgaet), pass the Staney Hill shop on the right, and continue up and around to the right following the signs for Norstane. No.38 is on the right at the top of the road immediately on the right as the road branches to the left and right.

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.
