Cross the cattle grid and carry straight on to Wormadale following the road up and around to the left. The access to the chalet is on the left shortly after the modern brown wooden house of the right; chalet 1 being the first chalet in the second (back) row.

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.
