To reach the property drive into Mid Yell to a 'T'-junction and turn left following the road downhill towards the pier. Pass both junctions to Reafirth, and a third junction on the left, and turn next to Linkshouse Pier. Pass a row of single storey houses by the roadside to the right; immediately after that is the pedestrian access to the house.

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.
