General Information

The Greenhead Base is situated in an industrial area mainly home to businesses working in the offshore oil and gas sector, about 2 miles from the centre of town at the north end of Lerwick's harbour close.

Lerwick, Shetland’s capital with a population of around 8000, is the main business centre in the islands which have a total population of around 22,000, the islands being the most northerly part of the United Kingdom located approximately 100 miles north of Aberdeen and 200 miles west of Bergen in Norway.

A daily overnight ferry service from Lerwick operated by Northlink Ferries provides a sea link to mainland Scotland whilst Flybe operates direct flights to Sumburgh at the south end of Shetland from Aberdeen, Inverness, Edinburgh & Glasgow.

To reach the premises take the turning to Dales Voe & Green Head from the main A970 road north out of Lerwick. Follow the road past Shetland College and fork right to Green Head, Greenhead Base being at the end of the road on the left.

The floors are currently sub-divided into a series of smaller individual modular units ranging from around 11m² up to around 30m² for the largest unit as shown on the plans overleaf, however the internal partitions can be re-arranged to create larger areas suited to a tenant's particular needs up to a lease of the entire floor, as required.

Heating is provided by electric panel heaters and each office will have its own telephone connection.

A well-equipped conference room on the ground floor of the building is available to hire by tenants.

Important Information for Prospective Purchasers

This schedule is intended only to help you decide whether to view the property. We always recommend you view the property personally.

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.

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.

Location Desired

Please do not select all locations - different areas in Shetland have quite different characteristics. For example, it would be unlikely that a property in Lerwick will be of interest to someone considering a croft house in Yell or Unst.
