Meadowfield Road is situated on the west side of the village of Scalloway which lies on the west coast of Shetland approximately six miles from Lerwick. The location of the house in an unusually leafy area of Scalloway means it is just a short stroll away from Main Street and the harbour area and a range of amenities including the school, swimming pool doctor's surgery and several local shops including a couple of general stores and a chemist / post office. There is also a garage, youth centre & hotel, whilst around the harbour at Port Arthur is the boating club (there is also a marina at East Voe) and the NAFC Marine Centre part of the University of the Highlands & Islands.

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.
