General Information

The island which has a population of around 360 is served by a quick five minute ro-ro ferry service which runs to The Esplanade right in the centre of Lerwick, the service generally running hourly throughout the day and evening.

Local amenities on Bressay itself include the shop and post office plus a community hall, heritage centre, café and marina, although the frequent ferry service means amenities in the town are also relatively easily accessible. During the summer months it is possible to access the neighbouring uninhabited island of Noss on the east side of Bressay which is an important national nature reserve notable for its bird life. Bressay has many lovely coastal and hill walks, with spectacular cliffs, lochs and local historic sites.

The information is believed to be correct, but it is not warranted and is not to form part of any contract of sale. All dates, distances, areas and room sizes noted are approximate and for use as a general guide only. Prospective purchasers should satisfy themselves as to the working condition or otherwise of any equipment such as central heating or kitchen appliances.

This schedule should not be taken as a comment on the condition of the property. This is a matter for your surveyor and we recommend that once you have found a property you are interested in, you obtain a survey report. We can provide details of surveyors if required.

Interested parties are advised to note their interest through their solicitor as soon as possible so that they can be informed if a closing date is fixed. Noting interest does not place any obligation on the seller to set a closing date or to give any noted interests the opportunity to offer. Whilst every effort will be made to advise noted interests of any closing date set, this cannot be guaranteed.

No responsibility will be accepted for expenses incurred by parties who have noted interest but do not get an opportunity to offer, or for any expenses incurred traveling to properties which have been sold or withdrawn.
