To reach the house turn north off the main north road at Veensgarth to Gott Farm, Strand & Laxfirth. Drive past the school and continue to the far end of Strand Loch, turning right at the bus shelter to Califf & Breiwick. 'Greenwell' is on the right hand side of the road a short distance from the junction, just past a row of three detached houses. Turn right into Greenwell and right again; No. 11 is the third house in.

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.
