Rare opportunity to acquire a house site (plot 2) with outline planning permission on the South Whiteness peninsula enjoying spectacular panoramic views eastwards across South Whiteness Voe towards Nesbister.

The site is one of two (plot 1 already sold) sites situated off the South Whiteness side road, a popular rural location within easy commuting distance of Lerwick just 9 miles away, although there is a local shop and a primary school within a couple of miles.

The site is estimated to extend to around ¼ acre which would provide space for a detached family home with a decent sized garden. Click here to see a plan of the site.

Power and water services are understood to be close by. A septic tank or similar will be required.

General information

The site is situated on the east (left) side of the South Whiteness side road, about a mile from its junction with the main road west, a popular rural location in a National Scenic Area yet still within easy commuting distance of Lerwick, just 9 miles to the east.

Amenities in the area include two local shops, one by the South Whiteness junction (Anderson’s Butcher & General Stores), the other a couple of miles further north at Weisdale (Weisdale Shop & Post Office, with fuel), plus there are primary schools at both Whiteness and Tingwall.

Outline Planning permission (Ref: 2020/065/PPP) was granted on 30th October 2020, full details are available are available on Shetland Islands Council website at:- at

The site which is on non-croft land, would be accessed via a track shared with one other site (now sold), the site being positioned to make the most of the stunning views across South Whiteness Voe to Nesbister. The size of the site should allow plenty of space for a detached house with a decent garden.

Power and water services (Scottish Water has confirmed that there is capacity for the two sites) serving neighbouring properties are understood to run across / close to the site therefore servicing the site should be relatively straightforward although purchasers should satisfy themselves in this regard by contacting the various utility providers directly. A shared septic tank will be required.

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.

Personally I was absolutely delighted with how it was handled from start to finish. Also, As a couple, Beth and myself were hugely impressed with the professionalism, attention to detail and speed your team delivered to us selling both property and buying another.
