General Information

‘South Punds’ is attractively situated in the middle of a field on the hillside above the South Punds side road, in the particularly scenic village of Levenwick on the east side of the South Mainland of Shetland, approximately 18 miles south of Lerwick.

The location of the house means it enjoys magnificent 180º views eastwards over the headland of Noness and out to sea. Local amenities in the area include a shop, doctor’s surgery and care centre, all within reasonable walking distance.

There is also a fine long sandy beach.

Additional amenities can be found at Sandwick to the north (approx. 5 miles) where there is another shop & post office, school and the South Mainland swimming pool, or Dunrossness to the south.

As well as the places of interest already referred to, the South Mainland has a great variety of bird and other wildlife.


The property comprises a single space measuring approximately 6.9m long x 3.45m wide (22’8” x 11’4”).

The front and rear walls are clad with painted wooden ‘v’-lining. The gable walls at either end are exposed stone. Two windows to the front of the building allow for fine views. There are three additional Velux rooflights.

Heating is provided by an open fire at one end and a stove at the other although these have not been tested.

The property is accessed by walking through the surrounding field. There are no services although there are servitude rights in the title and as there are other houses in the area it is thought it may be possible to install them although this would be subject to discussion with the various utility providers and any necessary consents required. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard as no warranties can be given.

The extent of the property offered for sale, comprising the but’n’ben and a small garden area, is as described in the [title deeds](assets/files/braesidesouthpundstitledescription.pdf "Click here to see the title description"), details of which can be provided. The property is being sold as seen with all contents included.
