The property is situated on a small cul-de-sac close to the junction of Breiwick Road and Knab Road. Approaching from Annsbrae Place turn up the hill into Knab Road at the small roundabout at the top of Church Road. Turn first right into Breiwick Road and No.24 is in the cul-de-sac on your right being the right hand house of the second pair of semi-detached houses on the left side of the cul-de-sac.
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.
