General Information

'Pangdene' is situated on its own surrounded by farmland in the Dunrossness area of the South Mainland of Shetland, approximately 22 miles south of Lerwick. The house is situated less than two miles from the main amenities in the area including Mainland's mini-supermarket & post office / filling station, a hardware store and the area's primary school; secondary pupils going to Sandwick or Lerwick. There is another local shop at Toab to the south, a hotel at Sumburgh, and a boating club and marina at the Pool of Virkie. Also within easy reach is the airport which provides links to mainland Scotland, whilst buses to Lerwick run along the main road a short distance from the house.

Nearby places of interest include Sumburgh Head where a huge variety of bird life can be seen, Jarlshof, Scatness Broch, Quendale Mill and slightly further afield, the RSPB reserve at Loch of Spiggie, and St Ninian's Isle at Bigton.

The house was completed in 2006 and is fully double glazed with oil-fired central heating throughout supplied by a 'Warmflow' boiler situated in the garage next to the 'Megaflo' hot water cylinder. There are satellite connections to both living rooms and bedrooms 3 & 4, and most rooms have CAT5 cabling for internet use.

Property Location

Approaching from the north on the main A970 Lerwick-Sumburgh road, drive through Dunrossness passing Mainland's store. After approximtely two miles from Mainland's, just over the brow of Ward Hill where the road slopes down to the airport, turn left to 'North Town'. Pass the two houses on the left-hand corner, and a row of houses on the right; 'Pangdene' is the next house set on its own on the left.

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.
